Has anybody hunted any of the following south of 70
Newton Lake
Carlyle - impondments or main lake
Rend Lake
Scatters
Oakwood bottoms
Anywhere in Union Co.

Just looking for a general hunting report
I hunted a club in Union Co. Saturday afternoon we killed 14 and I haven't been back since or heard anything from So IL

Ducks did not fly today at Rend. I think most have left and went north.
