Contrary to what you stated in your article, it's not illegal to shoot wild
turkeys in IL, though there may be some issues regarding discharging
firearms within some city/municipality limits.
IL DNR sets out defined turkey-hunting seasons - and IL has both 'spring'
and 'fall' turkey seasons.
Looks like you're smack-dab in the middle of the fall archery turkey season
- if anyone in the family is an accomplished toxophilite(word for the day -
it means archer, or 'lover of the bow'), you could potentially be feasting
on a tasty tom or hen at your next festive family dinner.
Several years back, someone on the list, or in an older issue of POMONA was
singing the praises of wild turkeys - or tame turkeys of the old 'wild' type
as superb vole/mouse control for the orchard.
