Illinois Fun Shoot 2018
« on: May 02, 2018, 09:13:34 PM »
Hello Folks!

Now's the time to vote. Which Saturdays would you be UNABLE to attend a fun shoot at Hickory Hills Rod and Gun Club? I plan on hosting two this year, and they'll be spread at least five weeks apart. This poll will stay up more or less indefinitely, but the dates will be set roughly three weeks from now. Let me know if these dates coincide with some large event I'm unaware of.

Happy shooting!
Joe

If I get to come I will try to bring buddies! 

Of course, the deeper it gets into squirrel season, the harder it will be to drag folks out of the woods!!

The first month to six weeks of squirrel season is what I affectionately call "snake, bug and tick season".   It's usually quite warm and undergrowth is still heavy, lots of sweat and scratching involved.  Of course, I have been known to go anyway...

Marked on my calendar.

Ahhhh! See date change. After all that work trying not to overlap things, I was told I have to be at an art festival on the 29th.
