Pheasant hunting locations announced in Illinois

Posted:

Springfield -- Illinois' Department of Natural Resources will be allowing residents to hunt pheasant at 19 different locations across the state in the next year.

 

Fifteen of the 19 sites are operated by the natural resources department. The remaining four are operated through a public-private partnership with the department and T. Miller, Inc.

 

Natural Resources Department Director Marc Miller says the program provides an upland game hunting experience for thousands of youth and adults each year.

 

Hunters can get permits online at the department's website starting Aug. 5. They are asked to review the application instruction and season information before submitting applications.

 

The daily permit fee for Illinois residents wishing to hunt is $30. Non-residents pay $35.
