    I am going to Illinois in September to dove hunt hopefully for ten days (if the birds and weather co-operate). I will be hunting on a non-resident license. Can I buy shotgun shells in Illinois if I show them my Illinois hunting license? I plan on taking shells with me but am always looking for shotgun shell sales/bargains.

    Yes you can.

    Nonresidents just need to show I.D.

    To play it safe, bring shells some places may not sell on and ID and out of state license.

    I hunted in Illinois in 2001 and was able to buy shotgun shells on my non-resident license. I was just wondering if anything had changed. I will have ample shells in the truck for hunting and five-stand. Thanks for the replies.

    Will be hunting up around Springfield on a deer hunting operation. Supposed to have five to six fields that they rotate day to day.

    Illinois builds the WSRC and they aren't shooter friendly?

    That is the dummest statement I have ever heard.

    Illinois is full of shooters and hunters and you can buy shells ANYWHERE with your i.d.
