Thats a negitive, ghostrider. You don't have to, but I kinda like the idea.

Nope, but dont give them any ideas. This state is so up-tight, they just might do it.

What's wrong with the idea. Say you find a dead deer on your property and it has an arrow stuck in its shoulder. Now you know who to call.

What's so uptight about IL. Go live in some other states and hunt and then re-evaluate. I think you will be happy with the hunting in IL. We have it pretty good in this state.

In NH you have to have your name and address on your arrow, so I just you a good old fashion sharpie marker, nothing fancy...

Thanks guys, my father in law is the one that had a guy tell him about this rule..... I couldnt find the rule online at the DNS website... I know in the past Texas made you mark your arrows, so I thought it could be possible???, thanks for clearing it up for me guys!!!! I appreciate it!!!

With all the new fee's (parks, license, etc) they are trying to implement I wouldn't put it past them to tax a guy if they found one of his arrows.

They could call it arrow disposal fee. [:@]
