http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2465/#When:04:59:03Z<p>Anyone on here know of any good hidden strip mine lakes around here?? I work for an outdoor magazine company and would love some insight on good, potential trophy bass spots in central Il. PM me if any insight is available. I only practice catch & release and love nothing more than to catch trophy fish and watch them swim away.</p>2015-05-02T04:59:03+00:00Firearm deer tag first for me.
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2464/#When:12:05:53Z<p>This is the first year I applied for the Illinois firearm season and only got one tag. I have gotten 2 since 1978. For the last 6 years I always eat one tag, so why buy one. It just felt kind of weird. Anyone else cutting down this year?. Just a simple question not implying your a bad person if you don’t.</p>2015-04-24T12:05:53+00:00Morrells
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2463/#When:14:56:13Z<p>With the warm weather and occasional rains, when does everyone think the mushroom season will start? I think last year we started finding them at the end of April. I am just ready for that butter fried goodness.</p>2015-04-18T14:56:13+00:00Bass Fishing

http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2461/#When:22:06:17Z<p>Turkey hunting is just around the corner for us in the north zone, but I would love to hear how things are going for those in the south zone or for the youth hunters. Turkey hunting is one of my all time favorite things to do and to make it even better, I get to share the blind in the picture with my dad. Its my number one goal to call him in a big gobbler and then if I am lucky enough, I can close the deal on one too. I am pumped about the way the ground blind looks, which should look even better when some natural vegetation grows in around it. The next picture is what the field looked like when I pulled into it to set up by blind, 20 plus birds with 4 strutters and lots of gobbling in all directions!! Next weekend can not get here soon enough!</p>2015-04-12T22:06:17+00:00AZ elk help
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2460/#When:23:37:14Z<p>I drew an AZ elk tag and wasn’t ready for it. It was supposed to take 10 years and it took 4. I was hoping a fellow flatlander who has done this before could give me a list of stuff I need. Never hunted elk before but have all the whitetail stuff. Any help is greatly appreciated!</p>2015-04-08T23:37:14+00:00Turkey fatality
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2459/#When:17:31:55Z<p>I was on a successful youth Turkey hunt with my son last weekend, this is my 4th successful youth hunt, got to have a lot of patience. I like to watch the kids shoot make sure the gun is safe then see if they are shaking lol. He was! We ate the bird for supper that night, it was delicious.</p>2015-04-08T17:31:55+00:00Crazy coyote encounter.
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2458/#When:13:27:20Z<p>I was riding my 4 wheeler yesterday looking for deer antlers . I came around the corner of a cut corn field bordered by CRP land. Out of the edge of the CRP a coyote stepped out and was facing me. I thought that in itself was weird, then it hunched its back up and showed its teeth. I thought oh s..t!. I have no gun just a knife so I was ready to run it over with my 4 wheeler if it came after me. I yelled at him and he turned and went back into the CRP. He had no hair from mid way of his body back to his tail. Has anyone else seen coyotes around Northern Knox county or anywhere with Mange?. I seen one in Henry county last fall that had mange .</p>2015-04-07T13:27:20+00:00Youth Antler Hunt-Mackinaw IL

2015-03-30T19:51:59+00:00Virtual Reality Fishing Simulator Business For Sale $3000 OBO: Proffessional Mock Boat/2 Simulator Machines/Projector & Screen/Much More
http://www.heartlandoutdoors.com/HOforum/member/2285/viewthread/2456/#When:18:22:57Z<p>*I HAVE TO SELL THIS BY MARCH 29TH DUE TO: NO WHERE TO STORE EQUIPMENT/DO NOT HAVE VEHICLE TO TRANSPORT* </p>
<p>This is a very unique Virtual Reality Fishing Business. There are two computer simulator machines and they retail for $3000 each new, ($1500 each used), they are used but in good condition. Everything that is included at its current used value is easily worth $5000,( I am interested in any trade of equal value: Vehicles/Computers/Etc.) It comes with the fishing DVDS (Deep Sea & Lake fish $500). The Mock Boat ($2000), which is pictured, custom built and is amazing with hardwood flooring and trim. A Dell 4100MP Projector with screen, backdrops, (2) Klipsch speakers (built into boat), two fishing poles/reels and back up reels with a lot of fishing line. There are 3 drills (2 are special for reeling in the line quickly while at a show). There are other tools and equipment that is included for full operation of this business. Also a lot of décor for visual effects, 15 handheld virtual fishing games for customer prizes. I can not say enough about this opportunity, the man who owned the business before me ran it for 8 years successfully. The machines are very sophisticated computers and not just a game. It actually scores you on how well you reel in the fish, that is actually the primary objective of the simulator. Your points are scored by reeling it in just right, not to much tension but at the same time not to much slack. The strength of this machine is amazing and you can adjust it to how ever you want. If you really get into it, you can literally tweak the machine to be exactly how it would feel if you were actually fishing.Your creativity is the only limit there is, you can easily make money booking events of any kind and charge $500 and up a day. Canada is the only place you can purchase these machines but the maintenance is straight forward. They are extremely well made and the two that are for sale have never had any problems. Most people have never even heard of something like this and they become instantly interested. If I can answer any other questions I will do my best. Thank you for your time and interest. 309 3SIX3-ONE8FIVE2<span style="font-size:14px;"></span></p>2015-03-25T18:22:57+00:00
