Dew you have any Sirius questions for deer meetings?

September 04, 2008 at 08:16 AM

Later this afternoon I’m buying a few Diet Mountain Dews, firing up the Sirius sattelite radio and heading off to Rushville for the deer task force public meeting.Illinois Outdoors

(And yes, I am trying to secure sponsorship from either Diet Dew or Sirius, both of which are wonderful products that make any hunter’s life better).

Obviously, some of you may not be able to make the meetings. And some of you may have questions you want answered. Here’s a chance to have me pose those questions for you.

What would you like to learn about heading into these meetings? You’ve got five hours to post something, since I plan to leave the plush offices of 1 News Plaza in Peoria by 1:30 p.m. before stopping at Presley’s Outdoors to visit with the helpful staff there. Then it will be time to sip some delicious Diet Mountain Dew while being entertained by the sweet sounds of Sirius satellite radio.
