Il License and permit question

I have never hunted out of the area and signed up for a guided hunt in IL. I have some questions about the fees if anyone can help me.

If you hunt with a guided outfit on private property, what should I expect to pay for a hunting license and what is this hunting permit fee? Does that fee apply to guided hunts?
We just have license fee's and WMA stamps (if you hunt on public land) here in my neck of the woods so this threw me off a little.

Any calrification would be appreciated.

Il License and permit question

Illinois is accepting applications for archery permits starting June 1, 2006.

*Lottery application period will be *June 1 - June 30, 2006 - at 12:01 AM CST hunters will be able to apply by phone at 1-888-6PERMIT (1-888-673-7648) or online at the DNR Direct Online License Sales site

The cost of a Non-Resident Archery Combination Deer permit (one either-sex/one antlerless) will be $365.00 an increase of $40. The quota will be 20,000 for Non-Resident combination tags.

In addition to a valid deer hunting permit ALL hunters are required to purchase either a 5-Day (28.75) OR Annual (50.75) Hunting License AND a Habitat Stamp (5.50). DO NOT PURCHASE A LICENSE UNTIL YOU HAVE SUCCESSFULLY OBTAINED A PERMIT - REFUNDS WILL NOT BE ISSUED!! Licenses can be purchased by phone at 1-888-6PERMIT (1-888-673-7648 ) or online at the DNR Direct Online License Sales website. These prices were not increased and do not reflect convenience fees that may be incurred.

o Only one annual license and habitat stamp is required to hunt for the entire 2006 deer season regardless of the number or type of permits held by a hunter.

There is an Outfitter's Preference for a maximum 7,500 permit applications that are designated with an Outfitter Number (this is part of the 20,000 quota). Hunters that are unsuccessful in the Outfitter draw will be automatically placed into the general draw.

If the 20,000 quota is not met remaining permits will be sold on a first-come/first-served basis.

We will allow group hunts but, groups will be assigned one number for the entire group (an all or nothing situation).

Il License and permit question

Thanks, I got that page but can you explain it??????? Don't mean to sound ignorant but like I said, we don't have a hunting permit down here for our "out of staters". ALL THEY HAVE TO BUY IS LICENSE and a stamp IF and ONLY IF it is on public land. What the heck is the permit for and does it apply to these type hunts on private land??????? Is the permit one fee for the group or is that for each person?
What the heck is the lottery?
Sorry, they just do things a LITTLE DIFFERENT up that way.

Ok, I will try and explain it... You or your outfitter has to apply BEFORE June 30 for a licence to hunt deer. This means you will have to apply following the instructions on there site. You have to pay for the license when you apply. They will send you your money back or credit your account if you are unsuccessfull in the lottery. A lottery is where they have say, 15'000 tags available. (They have a limet) So they put the names of the, say 20'000 hunters in a computor that randomly draws names... If your picked, they keep your money and send you the tag. If you do not get picked they send you your money back... Most hunters seem to get picked. If you have an outfitter, they have some sort of "set a side outfitter tags that might get you a better chance. So contact your outfitter and ask. Good luck.
