illinois bowhunting

  1. Illinois Rookie

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    I'm all set for my maiden voyage to the Illinois deer woods this fall. All my hunting has been done in PA. I've been bow hunting since 2008 and I've killed over 20 deer with a bow including 9 buck, the biggest of which is probably 160" or so. Any Advice about being selective?
  2. Normal Illinios Deer Hunting

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    I have recently moved to Normal, Illinois. I have looked into hunting at various state parks and county parks that allow public bow hunting. Some questions I have are what are some possibly good places to scout and hunt in the area and how big do average deer get up here?
