Illinois Department of Natural Resources Continues with Controlled Pheasant Season Extension.

Hunting for us here at Capitol  Outdoors usually consists of waders, decoys and all the rest of the equipment that is involved in a successful waterfowl hunt.  However, this year we've taken a new course.  Several years ago we got Linc, our red Labrador retriever.  After several waterfowl hunts I began to realize something, Linc is not a waterfowl dog.  His drive and determination pushes him and he is an amazing upland game dog and his personality fits this extremely well.

You could imagine my excitement when the Illinois Department of Natural Resources decided to extend the controlled pheasant season.  Granted this had been done in the past but, each year is a little different and I'm excited that they decided to do it again.  Below you'll see the three parks where they decided to extend this season.  


Controlled Pheasant Seasons Extended at Three IDNR Sites


SPRINGFIELD, IL – The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) is extending controlled pheasant hunting seasons at three IDNR sites. Hunters can make reservations now for additional hunting opportunities.

In 2016 alone, the Gilles brothers hosted over 500 local school children to their farm to learn about conservation. The brothers also hosted over 150 kids at youth hunts on their farm. The Ron and Ted Gilles are also active in helping to organize local hunter safety classes, youth dog training seminars and habitat farm tours.

Well done gentlemen!  Thank you for your work for Illinois and conservation efforts.
