    Winchester model 59

    I have 2 Winchester model 59's w/ the Winchokes. With todays modern wad would it be ok to shoot 2 3/4" steel in these guns? More and more lead ammo is getting outlawed. I love shooting the model 59. Lightweight, quick pointing. Great dove, small duck gun. Thanks

    CZ opener

    So how was the opener? Haven't heard much. We saw some ducks and geese but nothing workable. No shots fired. Canton area. Some shooting at Rice Lake but not what I would call a lot. Most of it in same general area.

    Illinois River

    Anybody watching accuweather? They say the river is going to flood stage by opening day in central zone. Looking at radar I don't see where it is coming from unless it's still out west.

    Deer herd

    Looks like the deer herd in W. Central Il. is in good shape so far. Saw a big buck and a small one in the last week. Tonight I saw 3 does and 4 fawns grazing in a cut hay field just across the road from me. Big buck looked like the 10 pointer left over from last year. Hard to tell this early...

    Illinois Duck Blind Drawings

    Will they happen this year ? Personally I doubt it. Prickster isn't going to let 1500 to 2000 people get together shoulder to shoulder, masks or no masks, shots or no shots. So the next question begs: Has the IDNR been working on this situation for the last year like they should of been ? Or are...
