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!
Below is the link to the bowhunting.com article regarding the Purple Paint Law in case anyone missed it:
alright. im just trying to figure out where i can hunt at when im down there next year. if anyone has any info about some places please let me know. im not from that area so im kinda lost.
A Sling-Shot Deer Season? Okay, I'll bite. What is it?
