    Jack, I used to hunt D&M with my dad Emmett. I remember a guide by the name of Jack, he was a fireman. Was that you by chance?

    Yes. That was me. I retired a little over a year ago as Chief of the department.

    Great stories. I hunted Rend until going to college at SIU in 1991. I was driving around Crab one day and drove down the lane to North Winds goose club across from Marion airport on 13....that's where I met the "Corn King" Jim Henreiken. I explained my status as a poor college student and he asked me to blow the call I had with me....was good enough where he let me guide and hunt all 4 years of college. Then after graduating, I became a member for a few years. Had a lot of fun there.

    How about some of you guys post up some pictures from back in the day of all those huge silo and tire spreads!

    Would like to see some picture of the old days too. Not been around the crab orchard area much but can see how horseshoe has changed over the years
