Hello all - new guy here

Postby ILwaterfowl71 » Fri Jan 17, 2014 2:48 pm

Hello everyone,

New to the forum and figured I'd introduce myself. Name is Adam and I live in the western suburbs of Chicago. Been hunting waterfowl for a few years mainly in southern Illinois because I have family down there (crab, oakwood and private land just south of the refuge). Plus it seems a lot easier to hunt down there - 10 different spots within a 15 minutes drive.

I've been to a few of the pay clubs up here but haven't been impressed at all. Hopefully next year I can get in with a group looking to lease some land.

Anyway I plan on being on here quite a bit and hopefully learning more about the sport and how to navigate the hunting spots in the northern area.

Take care,
Adam

Hi. You want to shoot at huge flocks of teal? I can put you there but not in Obamaland. Try further south and it will amaze you. OWB is almost there...just a little further and it is O M G.

The Corps of Engineers sells Navigation charts, but they are useless for trying to navigate this site. What I have found useful is an intimate understanding of interlocking fields of fire. :yes:
