Why go through the hassle of sending in for one permit? I’m buying over the counter for me and the kids. Shoot em up!

Because not all of us are out there to just “shoot em up”.

And some of us are fed up with the IDNR.  So this is our way of getting one tag, for the one mature buck we hope to kill…..without giving the state more money than necessary.

AMEN Brother!  I still get 1 combo tag.  But no need for 2 combo tags and save a little $.

You all are so paranoid that our deer herd is going to go extinct.  I let my kids shoot does or whatever walks in front of them. I take doe for meat and if a buck walks in front of me I’ll be happy to shoot it too.  I’ve hunted way back in the days when the deer herd was far less than what it is now. I remember the days when deer hunting first opened and you’d be lucky to see a deer all season and that was long before any hunting pressure like we have now. Don’t worry, if we kill them all they will import some more from other states.

I have to say…..My hats off to you jasmas.  Because if what you say is true…...

Then you are trying to raise kids in todays world while in your 70s.

Best of luck to you!!!!

Not so. In 1980 there were only 20,700 deer harvested state wide.  So even though today’s numbers are far less than what we got spoiled with a few years ago, it’s no where near as low as when I first started hunting.

Ok, my bad.  I just assumed that when you said “I remember the days when deer hunting first opened “, that you meant you could “remember the days when deer hunting first opened”.

Which was 1957.

But I guess you actually don’t.  Which makes me wonder, why would you say that you could?

In fact, I also wonder why you are so concerned about those of us who choose to purchase this single E/S permit….that you would take the time to post on this thread.  And even try to discredit what bowhunterdave had to say in the other thread he started on the same topic.

Very interesting

While the first season opened in 1957, not all counties were open until 1976. So I can say I remember when deer season first opened for me…maybe not for you. I didn’t discredit the bowhunters who choose to send in for a single permit, I just asked why go through the hassle?  I understand you may be doing it on principle, but do you really think it will make any difference with our DNR?  All you are doing is creating extra burden for yourself.

I consider driving to walmart and paying $11 more for an antlerless permit that I have no intention of using, to be much more “burdensome” than printing a piece of paper and putting a stamp on an envelope from the comfort of my own home.  Although my mailbox is at the end of my driveway.  So I have to walk all the way to the street in front of my house.  And it can be very warm in August…....

Also, I didn’t say you tried to discredit bow hunters who send in for the permit.  I questioned why you tried to discredit what BOWHUNTERDAVE said in his other thread on the same topic.

When he said it was the DNRs “intent” to make it a pain to get these permits.  You had to argue that “It’s not their intent”.

When in reality, you can apply for/buy basically every other common deer permit either online, OTC or both.  But DNR makes you print and mail in the single ES tag.  And you have only a 30 day window to do so.  If it wasn’t their intent to make it a pain, I’d think that you could get this permit by the same means that you get ALL THE OTHERS.

It is clearly their (IDNR) intent to make one jump through a few more hoops.

I actually remembered to send my in this year.  Two years ago I received mine Sept. 30, I had already left for the opener.
They give you a 30 day window to apply by mail and then mail it last week of Sept..  Not everybody lives on the property they hunt.  They make inconvenient for a reason.

$15 e-s bow tag…...deadline = Sept 1
..

There are now several counties, in Il, that the deer population is so low they offer zero antler less gun or muzzleloader tags BUT….our IDNR still forces every bowhunter to buy an antlerless tag, with every e-s bow tag sold, unless you take advantage of this application.

Make an sense to anyone here ??? That is because it makes no sense, it only makes our IDNR more money $$$$ AND that is our current IDNR #1 priority…...8^(

Save some money. Save some does. Show our IDNR leadership we are tired of their games they play with our IL deerherd & us hunters.

Tell your friends about these tags & the reasons our IDNR has hide these tags, limited them to only one, made them available for only a month, only on paper forms, sell them only over a month before season & only sell them because they were forced to by an act of legislation !!!
