Well, that changes things.... Illinois????

Well, I posted yesterday that I made a decision, and was going to try and get to Canada to hunt with my Dad in 2012.  I have always wanted to hunt the big bucks there.  The last decade or so has seen places like Kansas and Illinois producing some biggies too, and I would be happy with that, but Dad still talked about Canada.

So, I called just now to tell him I wanted to make plans for that trip, and he said, "Do you want to just go to Kansas instead, or Illinois?". lol

I said sure, but I thought he wanted north of the border.  Anyway, he said that we should do Illinois instead.

So, along the lines of my Canada question, are there any recommendations for Kansas or Illinois?  I'd be willing to hear from whoever has hunted there, and if you are an outfitter there, feel free to send me a link.

If you are looking for an outfitter to go to in illinois find something in Pike county. It is known for huge bucks and there are tons of outfitters never been there but have herd alot of talk about it and the proof is in the books. 3130 deer out of pike co in 2009 with just firearm. Other top counties are Adams, Jo davis and fulton. Hope I helped let me know if you need anything else

Thanks.  Those are for sure

Thanks.  Those are for sure some of the counties I am checking.  Looks like it'll be a little harder than just visiting a website.  There are tons and tons of "outfitters" out there, so it's darn hard to tell what is legit or not.

I have heard that Hadley

I have heard that Hadley Creek is a very good one. You should also check out IMB outfitters. they seem pretty good as well.
