CROSSBOWS ARE LEGAL FOR USE BY ANY
AND ALL LEGALLY LICENSED ARCHERS!!
Beginning January 1st Backwoods Whitetails will accept hunt reservations for any of
the remaining spots available for the 2018 whitetail season. We are a small family deer
camp that is located in Fulton County of West Central Illinois that conducts all of our
hunts on privately leased farms. Each farm has preset tree stands already in place and
all hunters will have the freedom to move on their own to succeed while still having
the assistance of a Lifetime Illinois Resident guide. There are No Antler Minimums, No
Trophy Fines and No Trophy Fee's. Therefore all hunters can relax while hunting 100%
Wild & Fair Chase whitetails for a buck of their choosing "WITHOUT" having to deal
with the hassles of Antler Minimums, Trophy Fines or Fee's.

PLEASE NOTE: "CROSSBOWS ARE NOW LEGAL FOR USE BY ALL LEGALLY
LICENSED ARCHERS DURING THE ENTIRE ILLINOIS ARCHERY SEASON"
