Is hunting permitted in the Lemont area?
October 1st begins the hunting season in Illinois. Residents may start to hear hunters in the areas surrounding the Village, and the police department frequently gets calls of shots being fired that turn out to be legal hunting.
Hunting is permitted in unincorporated areas of Cook, Will and DuPage Counties with the permission of the land owners. No hunting with firearms is permitted within the limits of the Village of Lemont.
Hunting regulations can be found on the IDNR website.
