  • Just moved back to IL and am hunting deer with my bow. I stuck a beautiful 10 point but was told I can only shoot 1 buck with b

    Just moved back to IL and am hunting deer with my bow. I stuck a beautiful 10 point but was told I can only shoot 1 buck with bow, the 2nd must be during gun season. I read the regs differntly, basically I believe I can take 2 buck with my bow and forfeit my shotgun buck permit. Is this correct?

    Better to ask a game warden and be told no, than to go ahead and risk loosing all your hunting privileges. In my opinion I would go ahead and contact your state's game and fish to find out for sure how they interpret the law.

      You are allowed 2 bucks per year, no matter weapon. So, yes, and you take 2 bucks with your bow. Congrats on the 10 pointer, what county did you shoot it in?
