Illinois pheasant hunting locations announced

July 30, 2013 (SPRINGFIELD)

Fifteen of the 19 sites are operated by the state agency. The remaining four are operated through a public-private partnership with the department and T. Miller, Inc.

Natural Resources Department Director Marc Miller says the program provides an upland game hunting experience for thousands of youth and adults each year.

Hunters can get permits online at the department's website starting Aug. 5. They are asked to review the application instruction and season information before submitting applications.

The daily permit fee for Illinois residents wishing to hunt is $30. Non-residents pay $35.
