I assume area 100 for non-residents is the same as area 100 for residents? I grew up 10 miles north of Evanston but this is my first time hunting the area in 6-7 years. My whole family drew out this year, 7 tags between the 5 of us (Me, wife, mom, dad, and sister).
I think opening day crowds will be slightly down due to it being a Tuesday instead of say a Saturday... that being said, we will all be there for opening day
It does help you're only after does/fawns, I would think you should be successful anytime you choose.
