Meadows Bow Hunt
REGISTRATION Lottery held each April
The Dixon Park District offers Archery Hunting for Deer (Fall) and Turkey (spring) in the Meadows Unit during specific days. REGISTRATION THROUGH THE PARK DISTRICT IS REQUIRED. Hunters are required to pass a proficiency test with their bow and attend a program orientation prior to the hunt. The fee schedule varies depending on the period of the season hunted.
For those who did not participate last year, you must attend the orientation and pass the proficiency test. Your orientation will be held inside Ruth Edwards Nature Center on Saturday, September 5 and Thursday, September 10 after your proficiency test outside. You are required to attend ONE of the TWO sessions.
Registration AFTER the orientation and proficiency test must be cleared with bow hunt coordinator.
