IDNR Launches New ‘Hunt Illinois’ Website

Thursday, September 10

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) today announced the launch of the new Hunt Illinois website – an online resource for Illinois residents and visitors to the state interested in hunting in the Land of Lincoln.

The website includes information on Illinois hunting seasons, places to hunt, licenses and permits needed, hunting and trapping regulations, hunter harvest reporting, hunter safety, wildlife management, and conservation programs.

“The new Hunt Illinois website is an easy-to-use one-stop resource for hunters to find just about everything they need to know about planning a hunt, no matter the species, no matter the season,” said IDNR Hunter Heritage Program Manager Jared Duquette.

The new website was developed by the IDNR in cooperation with the National Great Rivers Research and Education Center, with funding support from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wildlife Restoration Program.

The Hunt Illinois website can be accessed through most desktop and laptop computer web browsers, or by using most mobile devices, at https://huntillinois.org/.

I have only had a small opportunity to run through the site - but so far so good. While there are still a couple of areas under development and I fully expect as site staff get blinds, waterfowl stakes etc. added the maps will improve.

At first look,  this looks a job well done. Plenty easy to access info and navigate.

Go give it look, play with it a little and see what you think - inquiring minds want to know!
