Nice. I found some of that myself and 2 buck beds. Damn near impossible to get set up on though. One is on a point overlooking a lake and the wind blows from the only access to the lake so he'd wind you for sure. Thinking about buying a canoe and launching an early season water assault.
Yes the ticks are already out, the wife found a shed in some nasty thick stuff and when she pulled it out she had about a half dozen ticks on her pants, then that night she had one dug in on her neck.
So be careful out there.
As much crp as there is in Illinois ticks have only been an issue one year. That year we were covered in them. Also ran into some CHIGGERS that year. You ever get them bastards on you will be in pain...
