Iz, what part of Illinois do you live in? I used to live there and found lots of good public land to hunt in west central part of the state.

Well the dove spots I told you about are where I squirrel hunted.I saw alot of trails and saw quite a few.You could also get out and drive.When you see the brown "hunter and fisherman" parking signs.Park and get to scouting a bit  O0

oh yeah what do you think about lithea springs just north of there. there s parking lot have you spent anytime in that area? im gonna have to get over there one of these days and look for some funnels. seems like i have the most luck with quick scouting when i just find some natural funnels with trails and go with that. if theres deer prints then they have to come down that trail sooner or later. i wonder if you can deer hunt that dve field? have to check into that, but i could see that being a good spot good cover for them all the way around. cool man thanks for the tip something better than nothing.

might be the early season spot never know, i think it will depend on the crazy midwest weather.
