Illinois hunting and fishing

Ram vs. Chevy

Ram loses!


Now that’s what I call a close call!

It simply doesn’t get any closer that this! This video appears to be real. If you notice a small break and scene change in the middle of the video, I’m responsible for that as I had to blank-out a particular word to keep it family friendly!


Deer management petition info

January 14, 2009 at 08:41 AM

I have never seen, in all of my years of hunting, so many hunters as ambitious to save Illinois’ deer herd as they have been lately. In the past year alone, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been approached about helping Illinois deer hunters in saving our sport. I’ve never seen so much anxiety, anger, resentment and yes, motivation as there is now. As a writer, I love to write about the great outdoors, but with that task, comes responsibility.

Certain issues directly related to the management and planning of Illinois’ deer herd must be voiced by the very writers that carry any outdoor message to its readers.

I would also like to thank all who have offered to take copies of petitions with them in their travels for the purpose of gathering signatures with regards to saving our deer herd. Kevin Chapman, from KC’s Bowhunting blog here at PSO, mentioned last week that the previous petitions from others have failed in the past, so this may not be the best approach. Like anyone in this profession, I certainly respect wisdom and experience, and Kevin is certainly worthy of both. Kevin is another advocate for the Illinois deer herd who works behind the scenes with little or no recognition. Myself, being at wits end, knowing the squeaky wheel gets the grease, is willing to push this matter until Springfield has to literally tell me to my face, “no”. Perseverance, perseverance, perseverance.

Darel Martin, the field director for Whitetails Unlimited, also offered to take a petition on his travels throughout the state soon, if we were to have one ready by then. With the help of individuals like Darel, we can begin the snowball effect. If a petition is truly not the way to go, we need sugestions to let Springfield know, “We’re not going away”.
