In Illinois is there a minimum ammount of land that you can legally hunt.

I would think that it would depend on distance to occupied dwellings more than size of property.

State minimum requirements are 100 yds with a bow or shot shell... 300 yds with a rifle or single projectile. (From a residence)

There is no minimum property size requirements, but know who owns the property around you and make sure you secure permission to retrieve game if it runs next door. IL does not grant an exception to trespass to retrieve game. You have to have permission. So that's th only issue you may run in to on a small piece.

Bobba Down has it correct but it's technically 100 yards and 300 yards from dwellings you do not have permission from. You can legally hunt within those distances as long as you have permission from the building owner.

Land wise, there is no laws. I have a piece of property that is no bigger than a couple acres next to a forest preserve. For obvious reasons I can't shoot on the forest preserve but can retrieve game on there less any of my hunting equipment. The Forest Preserve police encourage us to shoot deer (and coyotes) for that matter. Very little legal hunting where I hunt so they are happy to get deer taken out not by cars!
