    Default Who's going out this weekend?

    Anyone getting out for the N. IL opener? I think you guys farther south have to wait another week or so right?

    Yep, we are hoping to get out on some public and private ground here in central Illinois. Most if not all the crops are out which will really help, hopefully we get a little cool down as well.

    Boys and I are going both days, all upland game starts on Nov 7 for the entire state the ending weeks differ for Northern and Southern Zones. Traditionally the upland season is the first Saturday in November. Going to public ground both days hopefully with good luck. It will be interesting with new dog but she will do fine. Good luck to all and be safe.

    I will be heading out Sunday. Can't do Sat but we have a big group hitting the back-country in Iroquois county. (and maybe a little into Ford as well)

    It's about that time of day when those roosters are leaving the corn fields and coming into rooster. Hopefully some of you will find a few of those roosting birds in the morning.

    To those of you getting out, good luck tomorrow. When you get a chance drop in and let us know how you did. Photos of those wild Illinois roosters would be appreciated

    I only wish I was hunting wild birds in the am. Hunted many many years in Livingston co. All gone now. I'll be at the chain tomorrow hunting pen raised but better than nothing. Good luck to all who still have places to hunt wild birds. You are fortunate.

    There's some wild birds out there too. A friend saw a hen with a brood. I'm guessing after tomorrow they'll learn to stay away. Lol


    I used to hunt Livingston also. Man did they have the birds! No longer the case.

    Yep. All good Mike thank you. I'll get him prepped and on salt this week then it's off to the tannery.

    Are you getting out at all over the weekend?
