Archery Trip To Illinois Might Happen

Well folks, I am so pumped, yesterday some friends decided to go on a archery trip to Illinois. We applied for a Prairie State archery deer hunting permit. I have always wanted to go on a big time deer hunt and it looks like this could be the year that dream becomes a reality.

Archery Trip To Illinois

We are planning to go on our archery trip to Illinois in late October to early November. Right in the heart of big buck country. I have always wanted to hunt in Illinois. Where the chances of getting a world class whitetail are very good. It’s a lottery to get drawn for so hopefully we will get drawn.

If you are wondering why I am so pumped up about hunting in Illinois, check out this video. If you are a deer hunter you will understand. I have already made my self a hunting equipment checklist. One thing I just ordered was a new bow that should be here tomorrow. The bow that I have been using for years has been a great one, but it is time for an upgrade. Believe it or not I’ve never shot a carbon arrow.

I just can’t wait to start practicing with my new PSE Stinger. Recently I bought it on-line at They have ready to hunt bow packages that come set up and paper tuned and ready to hunt right out of the package. I just don’t have a lot of spare time. A great deal for someone who doesn’t have the time to get a bow tuned and set up properly.

Of course I will need to get in a lot of practice between now and hunting season, which I plan on doing. If you are looking for a good deal on a bow package you can check them out at or click Hunters Friend, or call 1-877-410-7811.

Harvesting A Pope And Young

A while back I decided to set a deer hunting goal for my self, of harvesting a Pope and Young buck with my bow. Bow hunting in Illinois just might help me achieve that goal. They have some real trophy whitetails there and I just might get a bruiser, you never know. I have been deer hunting twenty seven years and have never been hunting outside of the great state of Georgia. I have taken some real nice bucks in Georgia. But I really hope to get the chance to go bow hunting in Illinois. I am pumped up just thinking about it.


Also I will be moving to Kentucky real soon and I here there is some great hunting there also. I’m looking forward to hunting in some of these states that I have only read about and seen on television. I hear there is a lot of corn up that way. You can bet those tenderloins taste real good. Not to mention those world class racks.
