Beaver Dam, Horseshoe archery hunts

March 05, 2009 at 04:16 PM

Archery deer hunting applications can be submitted through March 31 for site drawings at Beaver Dam State Park (Macoupin Co.) and Horseshoe Lake State Park (Madison Co.).  Hunters can obtain an application either online through the IDNR web site or from park offices to apply to hunt at either site during the 2009 archery deer season.  Site-specific applications will offer eight weekly intervals at Horseshoe Lake State Park and 11 weekly intervals at Beaver Dam State Park. Applicants will prioritize their hunting weeks and will be selected randomly during the drawings.

Beaver Dam offers approximately 450 acres of hunting area. Horseshoe Lake offers an estimated 600 acres of hunting area. Additional wooded acreage is opened to archery deer hunting after Nov. 1 at Horseshoe Lake. Two new areas will be open to archery hunters beginning this fall. Goode’s Wood Nature Preserve, a 40-acre woodland nature preserve located in northern Macoupin Co. and a satellite area of Beaver Dam State Park will open to one archery hunter per week (13 total weeks). Bohm Woods Nature Preserve, a 90-acre nature preserve located in Madison Co. and a satellite area of Horseshoe Lake State Park will open this year to two archery hunters per week (13 total weeks).

Drawings will be held on April 1 or the first working day in April at each site. All areas require the harvest of an antlerless deer prior to harvesting an antlered deer. For an application or more information, contact Beaver Dam State Park, 14548 Beaver Dam Lane, Plainview, IL 62685, phone (217) 854-8020 or Horseshoe Lake State Park, 3321 Highway 111, Granite City, IL 62040, phone (618) 931- 0270.
