Governor Quinn signed into law this week a bill that updates the hunting rules regarding the use of shotgun slugs. State Representative Wayne Rosenthal of Morrisonville, who sponsored the bill, explains what hunters will now be allowed to do:
The new law will enable hunters to take out various species with a rifle, muzzleloader and shotgun slugs. Currently, Illinois only allows the use of rifled slugs during the whitetail deer season. The legislation goes into effect immediately.
