I've heard of some good ones taken in IL so far this year.  Don't know if they were particularly from central IL though.

I'll have to see if I can dig around and find you some pictures. O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Well that didnt work. Aint a big buck in Illinois, they're all in Kansas, Ohio somewhere else,lol ;D :roll:. Seen a green 229, several over 200. Typical that goes close to 200, alot of 150+ bucks. Was gonna try and post pic or two. Buddys son killed 5 1/2 yr old 15pt that'll go 190+. Ive let several 8's in the 130-140 range walk waitin for a big one. Seen more big ones this year then I ever have before. Our camp took a 10pt that started out as a 14pt. Double tines on both beams, scored 155ish. Had 2 8's on the pole that went 137 and 148, all green of course. Gun opening this coming weekend will be interesting. But if anyone asks, nope aint a antler around,lol, they are finaly heading on to other lucky places,lol.
