    ANYTIME!!!
    But the first 10 days of November would have to be one of the best.

    Good luck...

    Anywhere in the midwest you can't go wrong with the first week of November. Try to pin it down to a couple key days is like the weatherman trying to predict the weather out two weeks. I use to live in MO and MI before KY, around the last couple days of Oct buck activity really picks up. Some cool weather can help too.

    If you can stand to do it, the week of our first gun season is usually about as good as it gets in Illinois. I usually go the week before our gun season(same time frame as you),I've had great luck over the years and seen plenty of buck action............

    I am going with Rivers Bend Trophy Outfitters October 27-31. It's my first time to hunt Illinois also. I hope we won't be too early, as long as we have some cool weather, I think we should be fine.

    Now through mid November is the time to be there.

    As soon as I get back from moose hunting in Alberta on November 9th I will be in Illinois every day for at least two weeks.
