About Our Illinois Bowhunting
Bucks must have a minimum 130 P&Y gross score. There is a $1,000 fine for bucks scoring less than 130 P&Y gross score. We also encourage every hunter to take a whitetail doe if they wish.
No stalking or still-hunting is allowed. Our stands are mostly ladder stands and lock-on stands and range from 15 to 25 feet high, depending on the type of cover and terrain. Ground blinds are available and successful for those who are not able to hunt from an elevated stand.
You may bring a climber stand if you prefer to hunt out of one. Use of safety belts from elevated stands is mandatory by Shuhart Creek.
