2 words....not good. The area we hunted was heavily pressured before we got there. Even though it was during the rut, we saw very few deer. I've hunted central IL during the rut for the last 12 years and have never seen it this bad. We were in a good area with lots of sign, but the deer had all been run off. This excess pressure was confirmed by neighboring farmers and the local DNR officer. Too bad, accomodations were nice and the guy was pretty cool. Just too many hunters. Anyone no of any QUALITY acreage that would be available for lease next year ?? Bowhunting only. Let me know.....

I live in Macoupin County, and your right, there is alot of pressure, can't help you about leasing it seems to me that decent land is hard to find.
