Some wild weed seed came up as well in time.<br /> Hopefully we don’t have the Weather of last season or at least as long. <br /> Hope All have a Safe and Sucsessful Season!!</p> 2017-10-12T22:38:13+00:00 Slugs http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2611/ http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2611/#When:01:29:02Z <p>I usually buy slugs (actually sabots) in bulk quantities in order to limit deviations in performance.&nbsp; The last time I bought sabots was probably in the 90’s when I bought a case of Winchester BRI sabots.&nbsp; Anyway, since I was down to the last few boxes I tried some different ammo to see if my Browning A-bolt shotgun liked something better; which it did.&nbsp; I’m going to make the change to Winchester Partition Golds 12ga 3”.&nbsp; Anyone know of a cheap place to buy these?&nbsp; I know cheap and sabots don’t belong in the same sentence.</p> <p>I’ve checked midwayusa, cheaperthandirt, natchez, sportsmans guide and Natchez is cheapest at $13.29 a box.&nbsp; On a whim I checked Bass Pro and Cabelas.&nbsp; All I got to say about their prices is that it better come with lube so it doesn’t hurt as bad.</p> 2017-09-20T01:29:02+00:00 Bird dog puppies http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2610/ http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2610/#When:12:35:33Z <p>Crossroads kennels currently has 2 litters of puppies for 2017.<br /> English Setter litter born Aug 6 2017.

My friend Greg Fine of Northstar Trophy Outfitters has openings remaining for Fall 2017. This includes some rut dates.&nbsp; He has the track record of producing some high end trophies. 140”-160” are common and every year he’ll have one or two that score much better.&nbsp; His prices are working class as well. Anyone interested can message me I will give you more details.</p> 2017-09-03T22:46:45+00:00 Actual deer hunting hours http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2608/ http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2608/#When:14:06:50Z <p>These are not sunrise and sunset tables.&nbsp; I took them from the Illinois Hunting and Trapping Guide’s and changed them to actual deer shooting times.(1/2 hour before sunrise until 1/2 hour after sunset).&nbsp; They are for the eastern zone of Illinois.&nbsp; Add 4 minutes for the central and 10 minutes for the western zone.&nbsp; Check the guide to see which zone you are hunting.&nbsp; You would think the DNR would include these tables.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> 2017-08-09T14:06:50+00:00 2017 2018 hunter’s digest on line http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2607/ http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2607/#When:14:47:47Z <p><a href="https://www.dnr.illinois.gov/hunting/documents/HuntTrapDigest.pdf">https://www.dnr.illinois.gov/hunting/documents/HuntTrapDigest.pdf</a></p> 2017-08-08T14:47:47+00:00 Single either sex application link http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2606/ http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2606/#When:14:47:01Z <p>Print and mail by sept. 1st</p> <p><a href="https://www.dnr.illinois.gov/hunting/Documents/ResidentEitherSexArcheryDeerPermitApplicationAugust1September1.pdf">https://www.dnr.illinois.gov/hunting/Documents/ResidentEitherSexArcheryDeerPermitApplicationAugust1September1.pdf</a></p> 2017-08-01T14:47:01+00:00 List of new hunting laws http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2605/ http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2605/#When:00:20:14Z <p>Question on the new state hunting laws.
