Have you tried horseshoe lake? I've done real good out there "freestyle". Pheasants and quail.

There are some grass fields down by Oakwood bottoms between Rt. 3 and the Levee. I've seen several people there in past working dogs and hunting.

the property just north of Cemetery Rd, between Cemetery and Muntz Rd to River. Rt. 3 to Levee Rd.

I know Pyramid State Park near Pinckneyville, IL allows upland game hunting, although I've never hunted for them there ... only waterfowl. Go to the IDNR web site for details. http://dnr.state.il.us/lands/landmgt/parks/r5/pyramid.htm#Hunting. non-toxic shot is required.

I know that you have to have a free annual permit to hunt there, which you register for online. Details are on the web site too.

If you go, let me know how you do. - Bob

Can't hunt at pyramid without a permit and good luck getting one I have been trying for 3-4 years now and no luck. Also you have to apply in August I believe.

guess it's late to respond. Carlyle has pay to hunt pheasants at Hazlett state park. You can go there at 8 am and see if they have additional permits if you don't already have one/reservation already. There is a place in new memphis station called kaskaskia hunt club that is 45.00 for hunting and 2 pheasants or 3 chukar or 5 quail. Also old man Heggamier over near Nashville will put out birds on his property also. These are strictly "put and take" places.

I hunt Quarry Ridge Hunt Club in Lena IL and it's a real nice place. Give them a call and I have never had a problem getting into a field there. Good luck.
