IDNR will conduct a drawing on Sat., Sept. 15 for three youth to hunt deer during the Illinois Youth Firearm Deer Season at the Coffeen Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area-Upland Management Area on Oct. 6-7. Participating youth must have a valid Montgomery County Youth Firearm Deer Permit. To be eligible for the Sept. 15 drawing, the youth’s name, mailing address, and contact number must be printed on a 3″ x 5″ postcard and received at the Coffeen Lake SFWA site office by close of business on Sept. 14. Successful applicants will have until Sept. 30 to apply for and report their Montgomery County Youth Firearm Deer Permit number to the Coffeen Lake site office (failure to do so will result in losing the spot for the special youth hunt and an alternate selection will take their place). The mailing address to apply is:

Coffeen Lake FWA
P.O.Box 517
Coffeen, IL 62017.

For more information, contact the site office at 217-537-3351 or by e-mail at
