    Hello! I am from Northern Illinois (Deerfield) and new to the forum. Looking to get back into shooting and start to try to learn to bow hunt. I shot archery as a kid but have not shot in 28 years. So I am currently looking for a reputable and friendly shop in the Northern Illinois area. If anyone has any recommendations to shops in the area it would be appreciated. Looking forward to picking your brains and asking stupid questions!

    Welcome! Someone from N. Illnois should be able to direct you to the right shop. Plenty of people from that state here.
