Hunting & Trapping Digests

The Illinois Digest of Hunting & Trapping Regulations is the primary public source of official information about Illinois hunting laws and related regulations.

The Waterfowl Digest is the official source of information for hunting migratory species.

The Digests can be accessed either online, or as printed pamphlets available at hunting license vendors and ILDNR offices statewide. Annual Digests can be expected to be published sometime during each summer prior to the Illinois State Fair. Therefore, previous year's Digests are still being circulated in the first half of each year.
