2013 NIHFD Annual Event Program

The Northern Illinois Hunting and Fishing Days is a Not-for-Profit Organization 501c3. We hope to enlighten, guide and promote comradely among individuals whose primary interest is to enjoy the natural resources, through careful conservation of wildlife and the preservation of natural habitat. Our FREE family-fun event serves to educate our communites with the knowledge, safety skills, and experiences gained through the Outdoors. Sharing the experiences that make our sporting way of life a special privilege is quite possibly the most important thing we can do. Providing our role in history as conservationists is the way to carry on what Outdoors men and Women have fought for, for over 100 years to ensure our lands will continue to be in good hands.

With out continued partnership with Ducks Unlimited we protect marsh and swampland to protect waterfowl habitat for future generations and practise ethical hunting of all animals. Duck hunting continues to be a popular sport in this area. Join us in our annual duck call competition too for some extra fun!

We are dedicated to enhancing the outdoor experience for future generations by enjoying the recreational opportunities and symbiotic relationship to humanity that the outdoors provides.

Program Booklet Advertising still available. Please use links to registration forms.

Dave and his crew are perfect guides and hosts. We had a great weekend and caught a lot of fish. We will definitely be back next year. – Jack and Lloyd Finch

We spent a wonderful long weekend with the fabulous guides. They were helpful and knew their stuff. We had a very successful hunt. – Henry Jacobs

I was so happy we chose Dave as a guide. He is so knowledgeable about the wilderness and has the survival skills and instincts I was looking for. I learnt a lot on our trip and would love to spend more time out in the wild with him and his crew. – Wayne Mills, WildernessFox.com
