So where is North Central IL?
I thought it was rather self explanatory, the central part of Northern IL [:D]
For me it is a couple miles south of Stillman Valley along the MIGHTY Stillman Creek. The neighbor lets me hunt his 13 wooded acres that is surrounded by the creek, has a feeder creek running thru it and corn, beans and another pasture/wooded area. It is a travel corridor. No bedding that I have ever found. It is not that thick anyway.
I have seen a couple bed down during the day last year only due to being chased out of the fields by the combines. That was the one and only bow kill I have. I just started last year.
The first four days I was out I saw plenty of deer. If I had my sight light at the time I would have taken a shot. But I was not comfortable with it in the low light (legal light) so I didn't take it. Now I am bummed [&:]
As far as the roof project goes, you have my permission to go hunting [:D]
