IDNR offers controlled pheasant hunting

Controlled pheasant hunting opportunities will be available at 18 Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) sites during the 2018-19 hunting season. Dates and permit reservation information are now available online.

Sixteen of the sites are operated by the IDNR, while two other sites continue to be operated in a public/private partnership arrangement between the IDNR and concessionaire T. Miller, Inc.

“Controlled pheasant hunting provides an upland game hunting experience for thousands of hunters in Illinois each year, and it is a great chance for young hunters to have success while hunting,” said IDNR Director Wayne Rosenthal. “Now is the time for hunters to start planning for the upcoming season.”
