Default 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.

Hi King
To get your permit to hunt at Des Plaines you have to go to the ranger station there and see if they have any left. Des Plaines has a line up around september 1st to get your permit it was about 1000 each season but i think that they cut it down some but they always had some left so go there and ask . Good luck Trapper

Thanks Trapper. I will do that. I was really bummed because I scouted so much this spring and summer. I'm going to call today and see if any permits are left.
