Time to Apply for your Illinois Gun and Archery Permit
For all deer hunters hunting in the state of Illinois it’s time to get your archery and gun tags. The tag application deadline for both archery and gun is June 30th. To apply for your tag you can go to the Illinois DNR website located at http://www.dnr.illinois.gov. When applying for your tags you will also need to purchase a hunting license either a 5 day or seasonal along with a habitat stamp.
When applying for a gun tag please contact the office to see which county you will be hunting in if you have not already been informed. Also if you have not already booked a hunt with us, now is the time to do it before the tag deadline. There is very limit space available for the rut archery hunts and for the gun season. Opening week of October is still available along with our Sitka sponsor week.
There should be left over archery permits if you miss the June 30th deadline. But if you know you are coming then apply in June to be safe.
For booking a hunt or for any questions with tags please contact me in the office at 217-734-2526 or you can email me at Mattb@Heartlandlodge.com.
