Sorry - I'd love to help - but I'd have to see it in person to help \:\)

Seriously tho - probably still a little early at that time to see alot of pre-rut activity - they may be doing some scraping. Probably best bet is to find some good heavy cover travel routes between bedding areas and the corn...

I went last year from the 23rd to the 31st! I had a great time but moon kinda messed me up. Deer stopped moving after the 2nd day and it got really hard hunting! We were in Northeast Missouri, our land was kinda the same setup.

We hunted up in the draws in the morning and down on the fields in the evening! Saw alot of deer just no shooters although my friend passed the first buck he saw which was a 130 8point which he lived to regret!

I wouldn't rattle if the place has been hunted much, maybe a little light sprarring. I'd look for oak mast to huntin the mornings and the field edges in the evening. Unless somebody is going to be there giving you advice, I'd spend the first day scouting.

I'm from Mo. hunted there all my life and my advise to you is hunt the bottom of those draws or get on the point of intersecting hollers. never had any luck rattling but a grunt tube seems to fire em up. good luck!!

Ditto.

It seems in the area of Illinois i hunt. Every other year is good on decoys and hittin the horns. Year before it was great for us. Last year they didnt respond.
The rut seems to hit around Nov 10th where we hunt.

Good Luck and keep us posted on how you do.
