You will have to get a pass from your doctor and then send that to the DNR. I would get on it right away if you plan to hunt this fall.

Call the DNR in Sterling IL. They should be able to tell you what you need and where to send it.

I found out that in order to qualify for a crossbow permit one needs to be permently disabled in the state of Illinois. thanks for your help everyone that responded.
