2002 season opener
was a great hunt!
KARS Hamfest Chairman
found a great little picnic grove just north
of Aroma Park, IL and the Kankakee River.
This picnic grove
turned out to be a
"smoke and mirror trick" on the part of Chip.
From the road
this appeared to be a
small area with no patrons present.
So well hidden was the fox that 3 of 4 hunting
teams passed the grove up more than once.
In reality our
crafty FOX was "well hidden"
in a bushy area behind the right side of the grove.
This area is so heavily wooded that radio signals
reflect and travel down open roads like a pipeline.
This makes for a very interesting hunt.
Just as you think
you have an "easy run"
you find that you've been fooled by the sly old fox!
Strategies change rapidly as you attempt to re-group.
As stated before,
hiding a 4-door sedan
this well was a great smoke and mirror trick!!!
Way to go Chip, thanks!
Chip K9IOC was indeed the "sly fox"

This is a view from the back side of K9IOC's great hiding spot.
