Deer & Turkey Expo

Postby Deebz » Tue Mar 20, 2012 10:05 am

Anybody planning on going to the IL Deer and Turkey Expo this year? I've gone and really enjoyed it in the past when it was in Bloomington, but I'm thinking Peoria might be just a little too far to make a day trip of it...

My deer camp buddies are going Friday. I was going to go with them, but I picked up some much needed work so I probably won't....bit I ain't complainin'! I'll never complain about being "too busy" ever again!

I hear ya there Woodsie... We have a double header scheduled for Friday, so I'll at least be busy and not moping around the house

Right on.. I made it out a couple weekends back down to Kickapoo Sate Park north of Danville. We slayed the gills, plus a bonus catfish, a handful of largemouth in the 10-15 inch range, 2 jumbo perch, and 1 18 inch trout that managed to survive since the last stocking... Had a great time
