well, I guess my hunting days are over.

All my boys are back in KY. Some have some land for turkeys, deer, dove shoots, etc. Well, it'll cost me 115 bucks for a hunting license, 50 for a turkey stamp, and 30 for dove. So 195 just to have the opportunity to shoot at something. I'm wondering if the fine for hunting without a license wouldn't be less. I've never been questioned anyway.


On a lighter note, I can't even figure out the IL laws to try to buy a license or APPLY for a permit (how the f do you APPLY for a permit for an overpopulated animal like a turkey, only in IL). There are at least four zones for turkey hunting and they have different seasons. I give. If anyone has IL hunting experience, help would be appreciated.



It's been a rough week here. Our only hope Bill Brady lost the primary so there's no chance of recapturing some of our rights or seeing lower taxes. The GOP can't unite behind Topinka, so Blagojevich is going to win again. And then we'll have more gun control (AWB) 7.2BILLION in new social programs financed by loans which means higher taxes. very bad week.

covering mouth and giggling.



kinda pisses me off too to know that I'm paying for social programs for doing something that should be my right. (don't mind a small fee to cover Dept nat resourse expenses etc, but this is cost prohibitive and the money goes into the pot to be doled out to the ones who won't work)

Our licenses aren't too much money but the hunting and fishing laws are so inconsistent and arbitrary that they are becoming difficult to follow. If you cross an unmarked imaginary line with a certain hunting implement it becomes illegal? Even the Fish and Game enforcement can't explain many of the rules.

I have had a lifetime license for 10 years now.
When I bought the lifetime license it was $300, but they were had already passed the law to raise it to $500 or $600 the following year.
Hunting and fishing combo license at that time were about $30.
I don't know what they are.

My license allows me to:
small game hunt
hunt deer with bow
hunt bucks with a rifle
hunt deer with muzzleloader
hunt turkey (all seasons)

I still need additional stamps to trout fish, kill additional deer, hunt or fish in National Forest, hunt with a pistol, hunt bear ($4), and hunt boar.

I will probably get my lifetime traout stamp and pistol hunting license this year.

I spent over $3k last year hunting & fishing in Canada, SC, GA and TN. Luckily I have a Lifetime Sportsman License for NC. Trout opens saturday, turkey next saturday, deer bow in 5 months

At some point it goes from pastime to sport to passion to addiction. I am happily at Level4

You should be able to find all the answers to your questions. It does take a little digging though. Get the sportmans license, like $30. Covers both hunting and fishing for the year.

I've been there and that's what kinda turned me off. There's no overview and it doesn't even make sense. It's fragments of information that never connect.

The hunting laws are a little weird, but you can figure them out. Have you got your FOID card yet? Most of the guys I met told me when I first came to IL. that they see most people get busted on the foids card and not having their gun case when it's in the truck. Remember to always put you gun in a case if you put it in the truck or you will get busted even though your just sitting there having lunch before you head back out for the afternoon shoot. I agree with you on our Gov. I'm sick of sending my tax money to Chicago sothey can live better while central and southern IL. get jacked.

What's wrong with driving down there to hunt with them?

For Lucas's 3rd birthday, I bought him a $300 lifetime sportsman license for TN. For the rest of his life - no matter where he "lives" - he will always be able to hunt anything and everything in the state of TN.

I figured that was one of those "gifts that keeps on giving"

Yeah that was me. The place sucked, the guides were stupid fucking mouth breathers. The only saving grace was good food and teh dipshit guides couldnt play poker. Laziest guides I have ever been with. 3 days 5 guys, 3 hogs. Thats it

It was a guest trip provided by a vendor of mine. If I had paid it would have been ugly.

NEVER go to Hawg Wild Plantation outside of Augusta.

FOID is most important. You get caught without one in your possession at
the time of inquiry, you quite possibly will be denied hunting privaledges for
the next 7 years period...no excuses.
Small game suh as quail, pheasant, rabbit, woodcock...requires a $13
hunting license plus a $5 habitat stamp.

Shotgun Deer requires you send in $15 and application for each tag, where tags may
be either sex, or antlerless only. You must specify on the application which
county you will be hunting in, and need to get your application in early. Two
drawings for tags...one at the end of May?? and the second end of August.

Bow allows you, I beleive unlimited antlerless deer, with limits on antlered.
These are $5 per tag/accompanied by the normal hunting license.

Turkey...have no idea but believe my friends have stated $5 per tag there
as well. I have no interest in turkey huntin' 'cuz they're just a bitch to clean.
Sorry for the
limited knowledge on deer bow huntin' and turkey as I'm not into that, but
hope this helps you some.
