regulations Harvest Inf­ormation Program

Contact Information

All licensed hunters must answer the HIP survey questions (National Migratory Bird Harvest Information Program) if they intend to hunt migratory birds (doves, ducks, geese, snipe, woodcock, coots or rails).

For regulations and more information regarding state wildlife hunting please contact:

In order to obtain a HIP certification this year: Ask for the HIP Certification when purchasing your hunting or sportsman’s license. If your hunting license prints out with the 901 HIP Survey or 901 HIP Certification, you are registered with HIP and do not need to phone in or do anything else. If, and only if, you buy your hunting license and do not get a 901 code on your license and decide later to hunt migratory game birds listed above you can get HIP certified via one of 3 methods listed below:

1

Preferred method, free of charge is to return to any license vendor and give them your IDNR customer number and ask for the 901 HIP Certification privilege.

2

Go online to the DNR Direct website* listed and register for HIP. You will then need to print out the privilege, which should have your name and address and 901 HIP Certified listed on the document. There is a $1.03 convenience fee for online registration payable by credit card. *www.dnr.illinois.gov

3

Call 1-888-6PERMIT (1-888-673-7648) and ask for the 901 HIP Certification. You will have to pay a $3.08 convenience fee via credit card or check over the phone. You will need to write down your transaction number and keep it with you while hunting migratory game birds to show proof that you are registered with the HIP program until you receive your paper copy in the mail.

additional information WHAT AM I REQUIRED TO WEAR Firearm Deer Hunting It is unlawful to hunt deer with any firearm when not wearing a solid blaze orange cap/hat and an upper outer garment displaying at least 400 square inches of solid blaze orange material. Note: Camouflage blaze orange does not meet the requirements. Archery Deer Hunting during a Firearm Season During the muzzleloader only, the youth, the late winter and the CWD deer seasons, archery deer hunters must comply with the requirements to wear blaze orange in counties open to those gun deer seasons. Archery Turkey Hunting during a Firearm Season When and where it is legal to archery turkey hunt during any gun deer season, archery turkey hunters must comply with the same blaze orange requirements as gun deer hunters.

DON’T SHOOT A SWAN

Trumpeter Swan

Don’t make a mistake! All wild swans are protected in Illinois. Several Midwestern states are reintroducing the native Trumpeter Swan to the region. Some of these birds are migrating through and wintering in Illinois. You can help bring back this magnificent swan by: 1) Learning the difference between swans and snow geese 2) Reporting observations of marked swans with wing tags, neck collars, bands 3) Protecting wetland habitat 4) Reporting any harassment of Trumpeter Swans

PLEASE REPORT SWAN SIGHTINGS TO:

Protected Species Long neck Length: 4 ft Wingspan: 7 ft Weight: 20-30 lbs All white plumage

snow goose Legally Hunted Short neck Length: 1 1/2 ft Wingspan: 3 1/2 ft Weight: 3–6 lbs White plumage, but BLACK WING TIPS. CAUTION - White Pelicans have black wing tips, but their wingspan is 8–9 1/2 ft.
