Baldwin Lake youth deer hunt change

September 02, 2009 at 03:03 PM

The IDNR will host the annual Special Youth Deer Hunt on the Baldwin Lake rest area at Kaskaskia River State Fish and Wildlife Area on Oct. 10-11 with a different procedure than has been used in recent years. 

Instead of a pre-registration, the 26 deer hunting locations at the site will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.  The special hunt area is between Baldwin Lake and the Doza Creek Waterfowl Management Area.

The main gate at Baldwin Lake will be open until 9 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 9 for youth hunters and accompanying adults to select a deer hunting location and erect a deer stand. (Blaze orange required while at the site).  Hunting must be from an elevated stand at least six feet high and within 10 yards of the selected signed and numbered hunting location.

Additional rules about the hunt and maps of the special hunt area and hunting locations will be available at the site’s check station next to the Baldwin Lake office on Oct. 9 and during the special two-day hunt. 

Participating youth must have either a St. Clair County or Randolph County Youth Deer Hunt permit and follow statewide regulations for the youth hunt.  In addition to this special hunt at the Baldwin Lake rest area, the rest of the Kaskaskia River SFWA and Turkey Bluffs SFWA south of Chester are also open during the youth hunt. 

For more information, call Brian Mahan at 618/295-2877.
