Most memorable outing in Illinois? Came home from school in Carbondale in late October, got to Peoria County about 4:30 p.m. and I wasn't going to go out but I only had 3 days to hunt before going back to school. Got in my stand and had a 6-pointer and 3 does in the field behind me. Ten minutes later I had a slick head on the ground about 20 yards from me. Next afternoon went to a different farm and killed a mature 8-pointer that scored about 120. It was unbelievable, since I hadn't even got to hunt my farm all year.
