Hi there, Just wrapped up my hunter education at Max McGraw Wildlife foundation by Elgin. I am looking to get into fall turkey hunting (shotgun) and was wondering if there any other Northern Illinois turkey hunters on this message board. Hope to learn a lot from the stories on the message board and hopefully meet some northern Illinois turkey hunters!
Welcome. Not from Illinois though. Do a search for fall hunting and you should have plenty of reading until someone from your area chimes in. My sister lives in Oregon Il and she says they are thick around there.
Welcome to the T&TH Forums. I'm from Southern Illinois but there are a lot of turkeys in the nw border counties next to Wisconsin. Scout out the area and know there are turkeys in the area. Then be patient and go for the entire day. You will get a chance at a turkey! Good Luck.
