Hunting Works For Illinois exists to promote the strong economic partnership between the hunting and shooting communities and the local economy of the state of Illinois.
Who We Are
Our membership consists of businesses representing a cross-section of Illinois’s economy. These include sporting retailers big and small, restaurant owners, hotel and resort operators, gas stations and convenience stores, hunting and shooting organizations, chambers of commerce and of course all the taxpayers of Illinois (hunters and non-hunters alike) who benefit economically and aesthetically from the license fees, taxes, and jobs the hunting and shooting industry provides both directly and indirectly.
What We Do
Hunting Works For Illinois advocates for public policy that supports jobs and economic prosperity. As a grassroots organization, we help tell the story of the role hunting and shooting sports play in both the heritage and economic health of Illinois.
What We Believe
Our partners have a story to tell about the important economic chain involving hunting and shooting sports that supports many jobs, both rural and urban, across the state of Illinois. We believe that communication is important. Hunters and shooters face an ever increasing number of challenges today. Public policy decisions that impact hunting and shooting ultimately impact Illinois jobs. Hunting Works For Illinois serves as a vehicle to facilitate this important public policy dialogue and to tell the story about preservation and conservation and jobs.
