Most memorable outing in Illinois? The day I hunted with my son Caden for the first time. We saw a deer to shoot but he passed. The experience of sitting with him in an API double ladder stand was priceless. I videotaped the whole thing and we will have it forever. (Has also shot the 160-inch LaSalle County buck pictured above in 2005)
