IDNR announces 2007 Firearm Deer Season Permit online applications available today
Online application will expedite permit process

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) today announced that the online application system for 2007 Resident Firearm and Muzzleloader-only Deer Season Permits is now available.  The online system expedites the application process, allowing resident hunters to more efficiently apply for their firearm deer hunting permit.

“Applying online is the easy and convenient way to go for resident Illinois hunters interested in getting into the first lottery drawing for this fall’s firearm and muzzleloader permits,” said IDNR Acting Director Sam Flood.  “Use of the online system helped speed up processing time for deer permit applications last year and I expect the same this season.”

To apply online, resident hunters should go to the IDNR web site at http://dnr.state.il.us.  Online applications are available using a credit card (American Express, Discover, Mastercard or Visa) or E-Check.

The application deadline for the Illinois Firearm and Muzzleloader-only Deer Season first lottery drawing is April 30.   Hunters can also use the online system to buy hunting, fishing and sportsman’s combination licenses, habitat stamps and other licenses and permits. 

The 2007 Illinois Firearm Deer Season is Nov. 16-18 and Nov. 29-Dec. 2.  The 2007 Muzzleloader-only Deer Season is Dec. 7-9.
