Nonresident hunters must purchase fall permits OTC
By Illinois Department of Natural Resources
Nonresidents planning to hunt this fall during the archery deer and fall archery turkey seasons, along with nonresident youth planning to hunt during the Illinois Youth Firearm deer season and archery deer season, will need to purchase those permits over the counter (OTC).
As part of the transition to a new Department of Natural Resources license and permit system during 2021, online sales of certain nonresident hunting permits are not available for those seasons this fall.
Nonresident permits for those seasons can be purchased beginning Aug. 3, 2021 at IDNR license and permit vendors located throughout the state.
An agent locator can be found online.
For more information on Illinois hunting season dates and regulations, check the IDNR website.
