Early season, late season, split season, it will never work to make everyone happy with the weather we have in the area. People saying we need cold, now we have it and some people are whining cause they think the season is over due to ice. If you don't like the Illinois weather, give it an hour or so and it will change.
Look at last season. No "weather" until late December. Some people whined cause the season never really happened. The seasons are set by the big money club owners down south, so I'm just going to hunt when I can and keep my options open to get through the whole season. Idk about anyone else, but one way or another, I'll be hunting till the end of January.
If I ask a question, I don't want your opinion. I want facts.
Don't tell me something you think, tell me something you know.
It's easier to say I don't know, than make something up.
Although, being a forum the next guy will know more no matter what.
