I am looking for a place to hunt but it seems like all public land has already had a lottery. Is getting on the stand by list very hard to do for places that allow walk in? and dose anyone know a place in the plainfield/wilimington area that I could try out?
I do not expect anyone to give the location of your honey hole away, im just looking for a place to learn a few things as I do not know of anyone with private land that I could ask.

I can't speak for all CPOs or POs, but a decent one will request for something similar if you happen to be stopped. Also, the ILCS reads that you must have "written" permission from the landowner. Therefore, you will need something in writing. And, I believe the owner's signature now has to be notarized starting 13-14 season.

It would take some unskilled CPO/PO to take a story of "that guy said I could hunt here" line. Most likely, a verbal warning would be issued and removed from the property. Now, some landowners already have trespass agreements on file with their local agencies especially for those lands that have a history of hunter trespassing. A simple phone call and on view arrest with a signed trespass agreement on file isn't out of the norm.
You have a link? I'm pretty cut and dry when it comes to law and judicial precedent.

Can it be used?
I would seriously enjoys saying, "here is my permission slip. Sorry about that stuff on it".
