Anyone out there hunting central IL this year. I'm at Woodford FWA and a few goose clubs in the Peoria-Canton-Pekin area.

Hey how is the river doing now. The ducks seem to be on the lower end of swan and the river should be doing ok. But it would be alittle hard to hold the decoys. Also heard that a place called tarpen was doing ok to. I think the Glads is scrating off a few. What do you have to say! :thumbsup:

I hunt around fairbury which is about 45 min north of bloomington normal. If you dont know where that is, its about 30 min east of peoria. We have had some luck, but its only going to get better!

I have been hunting at Anderson Lake and Sanganois Walk-IN, and we have killed 14, not to bad, mainly wood ducks and teal, only one mallard so far.
