The old Joliet arsenal is now Joliet Training Center. Every year they have a shoot around the 1st of May and you have to get 3 broadheads in a 6 inch ring at 20 yards. Easy right? Well, when I went I was amazed at how poorly guys shoot. I had to send in a money order for $25.00 for a parking permit. Then with my package I got from them there was a sheet telling me that all qualified shooters could go there Aug. 28th and 29th and shoot again to qualify for 5 years. So basicly I don't have to shoot again for 5 years in order to hunt there.
So, unless you already qualified in May you can't go. Sorry.
I just found out about it this year for the first time.
I do know there is a Buck in the area that has a name already. Elvis has a damn tree sticking off his head. Last year people saw him along the road only and said he has 3 drop tines on both sides. Record Buck.
Midawin is right down the street an they just opened up 400 more acres.
I'll post about that soon.
