United Bowhunters of Illinois


Annual Banquet


Saturday March 3


At the Northfield Inn and Conference Center

3280 Northfield Drive, Springfield, IL 62702


Featuring Guest Speaker

Rick Duggan

The United Bowhunters of Illinois welcomes Rick Duggan as the keynote for our 2018 banquet.  Rick grew up in Wisconsin where he credits his father for getting him and his brother interested in hunting.  His early hunting interests included small game and deer.  Eventually Rick moved to Colorado and forged a friendship with bowyer Keith Chastain.  He has hunted with recurves made by Chastain ever since.  Rick killed his first big game animal – a mule deer, with a bow in Colorado.  His passion for bowhunting led him to establish the goal to take all 28 species of North American game animals.  Two decades later Rick became the first person to ever complete a traditional Super Slam.  Join Rick at the United Bowhunters of Illinois’ annual banquet as he shares the details of this memorable journey.    


Region 1 Spring Stump Shoot

April 21, 2018

The 8th annual Region 1 Spring Stump Shoot! Last year we had 25 attendees. That turkey will wait! Let’s make this year the another record breaker. Anne and I will again host it at our property in north western McLean County. Weather permitting there will be primitive camping available, a warming fire, bow bird shooting, target trail, and all the hunting stories you can tell.

A pot-luck meal will follow the shooting on Saturday afternoon. If you are coming in on Friday and camping please let us know. The weather will play a big role in what we will be able to do but we will HAVE FUN.
