How many of you out there have ever hunted Chain O' Lakes, Moraine Hills, or Volo Bog?

I am curious about their restrictions as far as letting certain numbers of hunters be on the property at the same time. Also curious how the draws and things work for accessing the properties.

You can PM me if you'd like.

Just moved to IL last August from WI and would like to find some places locally to hunt. I live just outside the city in the NW burbs so it's tough as I am sure you all know. I still bow hunt WI, but it would be nice to get out in the woods on a Saturday or Sunday without driving 4 hours to the property.

Same Here

I have a very similar story to yours. I normally hunt just north of Eau Claire County. I'm about 15 minutes away from Chain O' Lakes and have heard good things about it. No personal experience though, but trying to get out there sometime this season. Maybe I'll run into you out there!

Yeah, I saw that. That is why I picked those three locations. Thanks for posting up though!
