Coffeen Lake youth deer hunt
The IDNR will conduct a drawing on Sun., Sept. 19 for three youth to hunt deer at Coffeen Lake during the Illinois youth firearm deer season scheduled for Oct 9-10.
The special youth hunt will take place at the Coffeen Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area-Upland Management Area. Participating youth must have a valid Montgomery County youth firearm deer permit. To be eligible for the Sept. 19 drawing, the youth’s name, mailing address and contact number must be printed on a 3” x 5” postcard and received at the Coffeen Lake SFWA site office by close of business on Sept. 18. Late entries will not be accepted.
Successful applicants will have until Sept. 30 to apply for and report their Montgomery County youth firearm deer permit number to the Coffeen Lake site office (failure to do so will result in losing the spot for the special youth hunt and an alternate selection will take their place).
The mailing address to apply is: Coffeen Lake FWA, P.O. Box 517, Coffeen, IL 62017. For more information, contact the site office at (217) 537-3351.
