Hi Hilltop! What do you think about archery elk hunting in unit 11? Turning 65 and need to pull the trigger this coming year. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Hello Roundball - Curious how your 4th season unit 15 mule deer hunt went? Seriously considering applying for the same hunt next year, but wanted to hear what you had to say about it. thank you, Paul
.Hello Jerm, my name is BOB I am 63 now and have 11 points for Elk for next year. Cant draw unit 100 , was wandering If You had any Ideas where I can get the biggest bang for the Buck. I will be 64 at time of hunt but get around good. Can't afford 8K + for outfitter. I would be solo also . Trying to get Ideas a head of time. Thanks ,Bob Baughman!
boiler, Are you a Purdue grad? Where you live at? I'm in LaPorte. You have an elk hunt this year?
Not out west. I do have a weird whitetail schedule. My wife is Chinese and will normally spend Sept-Nov at her condo in Sichuan so I get a 3 month hall pass. But this year her mother is visiting here in the US. And we just moved here from Illinois in March, and I have a cousin from China arriving tomorrow for his first hunt of any kind. So I will try Kingsbury mostly I think this year. I hunt public land.
I live only 15 minutes North of there. Then based on my observations will decide if I should focus on Kingsbury, or Midewin NTGP for the rut. I do have a one week special draw bow hunt in west central Illinois Nov 5-11. Got no idea how good that public hunt will be. I only scouted it once and the manager was clearing out the thick invasive species cover. It’s called Beaver Dam SP.
Well good luck!
