Waterfowl Hunting in Central Illinois

Postby Mallard Krazy » Wed Jan 19, 2005 6:34 pm

I was curious if anyone knew of any places within an hour of Bloomington/Normal to hunt?

I Grew up hunting in Wilmington and Plano. I go to school at Illinois State and looking for a knew place to possibly hunt around the area.

Hey, nice to hear from someone in the same area. I live in normal, and am going to heartland. This year when we didnt have classes, we went to banner marsh. ITs only about 40 min away, and it provides some good duck and goose hunting. Also, i have some spots around bloomington for duck and geese. Write me back or email me. WE'll have to talk for next year.

I will second the Banner Marsh idea. I live in Peoria and visit Banner on occasion. Definately worth it if you have alot of dekes and are better callers than those around you. Just remember, you dont have to be the best, just better than the guy next to you.
