    Redbud, how big is the local high school? I'm thinking we played a football game there or you guys made a trip up here to play us a few years back.

    I live in Lawrence county, IL. If you don't know where that is at I am in central to southeastern part of the state. Right next to Vincennes,IN. While we are talking about IL, have any of you been finding any dead deer? This EHD is some wicked stuff. I know of over 50 deer that have been foung in my area.

    There was a nice 4 1/2 year old 10 point found in argenta about a 2 miles from my grandmas place. It was a big scare but, I haven't heard if it was blue tongue or not.....HOPE NOT! I would be suprised if it is since there has only been 1 found, it was at a pond though....?? I guess I better start walkin the river

    Im not from IL but I've hunted Calhoun County & Adams County a couple of times. It makes me hate coming home and hunting these small deer in SC. Yall are definately blessed when it comes to deer hunting.

    We were 1A, I think it was when my older brother played. I just remember Redbud for some reason.... When I played, we had our non-conference games with St. Thomas More, or some other little po dunk team.
