Overall Impression: Good

I hunted the first gun season and saw a lot more deer than I expected -- 10 bucks the first day. Three were respectable 8 points but not the kind you go to IL for. I was placed in a stand that was within 75 yards of another property and had other hunters within sight most of the time, which was somewhat of annoyance. The second day was a total bust -- one small buck and a few does. The third day I saw a shooter buck but I blew the opportunity. Overall, I saw a lot more deer and a lot smaller bucks than I expected. I also was surprised to have so many other hunters so close by. Most of the stands that I hunted seemed like they were set up for bow more so than a shotgun hunt. Three or four bucks that were killed by others might have gone 140 to 150, but nothing spectacular. Several 8 points that would have been better bucks next year were taken by other hunters. Haven't decided if I will go back next year; they should put in place some antler restrictions to improve the herd. They also need to change up the stands a little for gun season.
