Thanks to the Bowfishing Association of Illinois and the IL DNR, we now have OFFICIAL IL State Bowfishing Records!
Bowfishing is one of the fastest growing outdoor sports and it’s showing. You can now enter your state record fish just like your rod and reel fish for entry into the official state record books.
Records will be submitted to the Bowfishing Association of IL who has generously offered to be responsible for processing, and then passed along to the IL DNR.
Applications and information can be found in the IL Fishing Digest free of charge anywhere licenses are sold or downloaded from the IL DNR website.
