My name is Brad Prejean I am from Louisiana and moving to edwardsville Illinois in Madison county at the end of April to go back to college! I am a huge bow hunter and actually work as a bow tech in a pro shop here at home! I am very nervous about moving up there because I don't know any of the laws and rules in Illinois! Are there any public land places to hunt around edwardsville that you can get over the counter tags far or is everything a lottery in this state? Thanks ahead of time for any info if this site is anything like our hunting site Bayoubucks.com I'm sure I'll meet some great ppl through this site!
Oh I also have a Texas blue lacy blood tracking dog that is pretty good this was his first year and we found 18 deer out of 24 calls we went on this year So I was wondering are blood tracking dogs legal to use in Illinois or recovery of lost deer?
