Guys only a few more days to mail in your application for a single either-sex bow tag.

Save over $10 and not be forced to buy a doe tag !

This is ANOTHER of IDNR's little secrets that they love to try to hide, BUT they are FORCED to sell these tags ( by law) & they hide them the best they can.

They do NOT offer them OTC like all the other bow tags & this is the ONLY tag that they allow bowhunters to buy only 1

And they sell them for ONLY one month ( August ) ?¿?¿?

Just started bow hunting a few years ago when I lived in PA. Am now back in IL and plan to hunt here. Is the archery deer permit specific to a county like the gun permits, or can I hunt private property across the state with one tag?

No

I appreciate the answer, but no doesn't address the 2 opposing questions I presented. I'll try again with a single question that can be answered yes/no: Is the archery deer permit specific to a county like the gun permits?

No it's not at least for residents.

Archery permits are statewide in areas with an open season, with the only exception (that I know) being some public areas that also have a drawing for a limited entry hunt. Archery permits are not valid during the traditional shotgun seasons, with a few exceptions on public areas.

As Franzen indicated: "Archery permits are not valid during the traditional shotgun seasons, with a few exceptions on public areas." They are also valid during shotgun season dates in counties not open to that season (Cook, DuPage, and east 1/2 of Kane).
