    new IL law?

    The neighbor down the road told us today that IL just passed a law that makes it illegal to hunt over a food plot. It has been illegal to put out food, salt/mineral blocks, etc for quite some time, and food plots were the only thing they allowed. Has anyone else heard anything about this? I put my little brother on it, he's better at finding what he's looking for on the net than the rest of us, but I thought I would throw the topic out there to see what others had heard

    I couldn't see em doing that, but then again IL has some really confused lawmakers. I was reading UofI paper on food plots today and it said that was the only legal option. Don't know when it was last updated, so I wanted to be sure. Thanks for chiming in Christine

    Only new laws or regulation changes for this coming deer season is the "purple paint" law and a sling-shot deer season in IL. It would be a little difficult banning people hunting the edge of a bean, corn, alfalfa, etc....field.

    I read about the 'purple paint' law. That is awesome. They need to get the word out better so more people will know what it means when they see the paint tho. I hadn't heard about the sling-shot season. That should be interesting

    I have not heard that either! If that is the case I guess the farmers are going to be shut down for making money!

    I am going to send you a private message, it contains the info you are seeking and Many Links to the info on those hunting areas, all are open to public hunting. I find there to be some great public hunting in the area
