Controlled pheasant hunting season extended at a handful of sites

Bird hunters up and down the state still looking to put a
pheasant or two

in their freezer have been given some extra time, assuming they
want to

brave the cold and snow.

DNR announced last week that it is extending controlled pheasant
hunting

seasons at Sand Ridge State Forest in Mason County, Jim Edgar
Panther

Creek State Fish and Wildlife Area in Cass County, Eldon Hazlet
State

Recreation Area in Clinton County and Wayne Fitzgerrell State
Recreation

Area in Franklin and Jefferson counties.

Sunday, January 16 has been added at Jim Edgar Panther Creek SFWA
and Sand

Ridge SF. Four days – Wednesday, January 12 through Saturday,
January 15 –

have been added at Eldon Hazlet SRA and five days – Wednesday,
January 12

through Sunday, January 16 – have been added at Wayne Fitzgerrell
SRA.

Hunters are encouraged to use the online Controlled Pheasant
Hunting

Reservation System at http://www.dnr.illinois.gov to secure permits
for

these additional hunting opportunities. Reserved permits ensure
hunters

will have the opportunity to hunt. Standby permits are also
available at

each site, although standby hunting opportunities may be
limited.
