Because of a 2016 calendar that includes 53 Fridays this year, Illinois Outdoor News must alter its print schedule during the holidays. This means that readers will have a three-week gap between Issue 26, 2016 and Issue 1, 2017. We want to assure readers that this print schedule provides 26 issues in 2016 and 2017 – the number you paid for when subscribing to the newspaper.
Illinois Outdoor News readers will see their final issue of 2016, Issue No. 26 dated Dec. 23. Your first issue of 2017 will be dated Jan. 13. We also encourage readers to monitor our website during the holidays at www.outdoornews.com/Illinois for breaking news updates. From the entire staff at Illinois Outdoor News, thank you for accommodating our print schedule change and happy holidays.
