Tell me about it....IL is completely jacked up when it comes to youth seasons. This is the third year in a row with these temps for youth deer season. Why on earth would IL only give a kid a two day chance at a deer...or a turkey for that matter....it does not take much to screw up a two day hunt. My boy can hunt turkeys in NE for $26 for almost 2 MONTHS as a non - resident. In IL, as a resident, he can hunt for two freaking days for $10. What a crock!
I feel better now. Maybe, just maybe, someone with authority to change or at least influence the law will read this. This is my son's first year and he is 8 so maybe it will get straightened out before he can no longer be considered a youth.
Bucks and does alike, if I ever lose the rush leading up to and after a kill, I will hang it up. Knowing me, that will never happen.
