Gear up for Spring Hunting Season!

You walk out to the middle of the woods and set up your hunting blind, the light from the sun starts to peek through the trees you can hear the turkeys flushing down off of the limbs.  It’s almost shooting time and you see that Tom, gobbling your ears off 100 yards away. So, you throw out a few calls and sure enough, he is heading right toward you.  You are slowly and calmly getting into position. Waiting for that chance to see him in your sight…STEADY, STEADY…STEADY…

Now you get to visit and share the end of your story with us!

Wild turkeys hunt season is upon us, and we have some of the most incredible public lands to hunt on.  Of course, turkey hunting is always during specific hours of the day and only for a specific period of time.  To hunt wild turkey during the spring season, a valid spring turkey hunting license and Game Bird Habitat stamp privilege are required.

Carroll County’s traditional hunting season turkey is right around the corner.  Public hunting is offered through a lottery system at The Mississippi Palisades State Park Hunting ( and The French Bluff Nature Area in Thomson. Hunt Illinois
