good luck to you guys, too

HuntinFool ... us local yokels have always referred to where we live between peoria and the mississippi river as west central illinois, but i see according to the dnr we are considered in the northwest region :?:
i hunt in knox, fulton and henderson counties, which is a heck of a lot more WC than NW ;)

I agree the map of the regions they have is a little crazy. I live in East Central Illinois in Ford County. 2013 was the first year they allowed turkey hunting in Ford. I hope to draw a tag close to home in the next year or two.

Dang, I've heard rumors IL is a high tax state. Oh well... :lol:

Have a good hunt.
If you agree with me call it fact; if you disagree - call it my opinion.
After all - we are talking turkey.

Got my 3rd season permit for Kankakee. Will be my first Spring hunt and 2nd turkey hunt. Hoping to be blessed this time to bag one. Good hunting all!
