Its Time to Purchase your 2012 Illinois Archery Permits
It’s time to apply for your 2012 non-resident archery tag. The application period for the non-resident lottery is June 1 – June 30, 2012. Hunters will be able to start the application process on June 1st at 12:01 am. If you are a group leader please inform everyone in your party that it is time to get tags.
All of our hunters are encouraged to get their archery tag and licenses on-line at http://www.dnr.illinois.gov Click on the top right icon: “Online Licenses for Fishing and Hunting”.
You will apply for the Non Resident Archery Permit (E/S and A/O), as an individual, and through an outfitter. A list of outfitters will appear, you will click on Harpole’s Heartland Lodge Inc. and our outfitter number will automatically appear. There is an Outfitter’s Preference for a maximum 7500 permit applications that are designated with an Outfitter Number.
In addition to a valid deer hunting permit all hunters are required to purchase either a 5-day or annual Hunting License and a Habitat Stamp. These, along with your archery tag application, are available online through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources at: http://www.dnr.illinois.gov . They are also available by phone at 1-888-6PERMIT (1-888-673-7648)
