cpd, some of the outfitters here are getting a real bad name for promising things they can't deliver. that being said, can't say that I've heard anything about them, either way. might want to go to the Illinois Big Buck Show next week in bloomington and ask around about them there. and if all else fails, keep in touch. might be able to swing a southern illinois trip for you. to my farm. cheap, lots of deer, and lots of places you can hunt.

When is the show in Bloomington. Might try and make it. Picking an outfitter definatey makes me nervous, especially being a new hunter. I have heard nightmare stories. Thanks for the advice.

I hunted schuyler a couple of years back, with an outfitter called Parr's Huntn' Whitetails the operator was Don (or Ron, I can't remember) Parr from Pennsylvania. I would not recommend him, I don't really like to badmouth someone just on my experience but everyone in camp was very displeased with the whole experience. Land was ok but over hunted, accomodations were at a older couples home (very nice people) but too many people for the house (6 guys, 1 bathroom), and incompetent guides all added up to a bad hunt. What he did, was lease ton's of property all over the county, bring in LOTS of hunters and rent space any place he could find for guys to sleep. He would have all of his hunters (a couple dozen while I was there) meet at a local restaurant on sunday morning then have local guys take you to your hunting spot. It was such a predictable routine we were told by some other local hunters that everyone in the area knew that if the meeting didn't take place on sunday morning all of his hunting leases were fair game for the week! I would really doubt if he still was operating in that area, but if he is be careful

cpd, to clarify cheap for you. cheap means free. not an outfitter, just someone who will share what he has to a certain point. might have a couple guys from another site coming up this november. bow hunt the week before shotgun season.

What are the non-resident fees for IL? I'd like to come up one day, but probably not this fall.
