New Member! Southern Illinois Questions

Hello Folks!

New member JimBob here from South Carolina...

I am going to southern Illinois this November -

The first trip is with the bow... 5-14 November and then also for the first 3 day shotgun season - I think that is like 19-21 November.

I drove up for Memorial Day and scouted for two days - and found what I think are gonna be some good areas - but if anyone here can offer some hints or tips - that would be great!

I will be on public land so I know I will have some company - but that is ok... I hunted the WMA's and military reservations in GA for years - so I think I can manage.

Wish me luck!

JimBob in SC

Illinois

Thank you folks - for the warm welcome.

I will update the trips afterwards on the forum - with pics - whether I get a deer or not.

I know it is gonna be tough - have not bowhunted in almost 20 years and I am well into my 50's.

I do appreciate the best wishes - and of course, I wish the best for all of you this year, as well!

Regards,

JimBob
