Opening Day in Illinois

We arrived in southern Illinois yesterday, met our cameraguy, Brady, and picked up Jeff Ensor - who'd been Elk hunting in Wyoming - at the Paducah airport at 11:30 pm.   Today, we shot our bows (gotta love the NuFletch!), viewed our sets from afar and put out Day6 Plotwatcher cameras on other prospective places.

Jarod Jackson, good friend and owner of  Illinois Ohio Valley Trophy Hunts http://www.trophydeerhunt.com/ have 2 awesome locations picked out for Travis and me.  The past couple of months,I've been salivating over pictures of huge bucks Jarod has forwarded us from the Stealth Cams and I've got my eye on a  mature 6x6 I call Mr. Big... 
Travis is a little under the weather but hopefully he'll be up for OPENING DAY!!!  The day we've been waiting on all year long!!
