Not during the main ones.... in Nov. (Friday-Sun prior to Turkey day) and the 2nd season the Thurs-Sun after Turkeyday. During the youth,muzzle-loader and late CWD....yes you can hunt w/a bow but are supposed to wear orange.

It also depends on the area. Some public land only allows for bow and that land may allow you to bow hunt, if wearing orange, during the first and second shotgun seasons.

Don't other states allow using the bow during the gun season as long as you wear the required amount of orange?

Never understood the reasoning. They allow guns during bow season but not bows during gun season. More of the same from a government agency that only sees dollar signs and likes to play grab azz with insurance companies. No intention of doing what is right for the deer herd and sportsman.

Is this another example of IL following in WI footsteps post CWD? I want to say WI opened up the gun seasons to archery equipment after CWD to try an squeeze out a few more kills.
