Where in Illinois? I know of some areas in the Western part of the state.

I'm surprised that the ruling class of Mess-of-2-sh1ts' libratards even allow hunting!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Well technically if you send Chicago back to Wisconsin where it came from, Illinois would allow for a CCW. The problem is that city. There are more people in Cook County (Chi-Town) than in the rest of the state. Once you get outside of the Chi-Town area its a really conservative state.
