Im interested in bow hunting in Illinois in the 2004 season. I was wondering if anyone out there could give me some helpful info on some public hunting areas or even possibly on a lease.

Never hunted it, but there is quite a bit of public land in the Southern part of the state: Shawnee National Forest and a bunch up around Lake Carlisle.

I've hunted Fulton and Mcdonough counties in the west central part of IL four times now. Good hunting and always see big bucks. Choked a chip shot on a 150 class buck a couple years ago and still haven't quit whining about that one.

Finding decent public ground is gonna be tough. Suggest paying an outfitter and going that route. You can get a good 5-6 day bow hunt for $1500 or so, semi guided including meals and lodging.
