archery deer hunting
I was wondering if anyone has or knows of anyone with hunting land in northern illinois. I was going to hunt des plaines wildlife area this coming season. I scouted the northern woods very much and found some 6 pt antlers and some 8 pt antlers. I was very excited by this. However about 6 weeks ago I started trying to get deer tags. At des plaines you have to have tags, a licence and habitat stamp. Well to my dissappointment no place has deer tags. So to make a long story short I can't hunt des plaines. I'm 33 and a very ethical and consevation minded hunter. Only archery too. Any help finding some land in the northern part of IL would be greatly appreciated.
