Archery Tag Application

May 31st, 2011

Archery Tag Application,

AUGUST 1ST, 2011 UPDATE: Starting tomorrow (August 2nd) you will be able to purchase your archery tag directly from the IDNR web site.  Just go to and click on “Online License Sales”. Please let us know if you have any questions.



It’s time to start thinking about your application for any non-resident archery tag.  The proposed application period for the non-resident lottery is June 1 – June 30, 2011.  Hunters will be able to start the application process on June 1st at 12:01 am.

 All of our hunters are encouraged to get their applications and licenses on-line at  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 by phone at 1-888-6PERMIT (1-888-673-7648), or on-line through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources at:

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Looking forward to seeing you,


Matt Brunet
