Most memorable outing in Illinois? My most memorable hunt has to be a trip I took turkey hunting in Pike County. I went with my grandparent's neighbor who is 82 years old and has a cigar in his mouth from sun up to sun down. We're sitting behind a blind that he constructed sometime before I was born with his cigar smoke wafting lazily around, when I heard a bird come down from roost behind us. Before I could blink, George rasped out "[expletive] Judd! A [expletive] hen just came down right behind us!" This announcement was by no means covert, and the bird was gone. I laugh every time I tell that one.
