IDNR Confiscated Property Auction

According to Dale Bowman over at the Chicago Sun-Times the Illinois DNR will be holding a confiscated and abandoned property auction on August 29th at the Jack Perschbacher Service Center Warehouse in Pawnee. This is the first auction since 2005.

Contents of the auction include:

"15 fishing tackle boxes with contents; 20 commercial fishing trammel nets; 8 commercial fishing hoop nets; 109 sport fishing rods and reels;
24 leghold traps; five box-style live traps;
Five crossbows; 23 compound bows; 27 handheld spotlights; 223 assorted deer hunting tree stands and ladders;
One aluminum 17' canoe; one ABS plastic 15' canoe; eight small aluminum flat bottom jon boats (10'-14'); two small aluminum V-bottom row boats (10' &12'); two flat bottom "bass buddy" boats (9' & 12') - (Note: None of the boats at the auction have trailers or motors)"

Registration begins at 7:00 a.m. on the 29th. The auction begins at 10:00 a.m. If I weren't going to be out of town on business I'd definitely head over there in search of some bargins.

This auction only happens about every 5 years. All procedes are deposited in the State Wildlife and Fish Fund. The last auction produced $18,451.50.

I believe the Address of the Jack Perschbacher Service Center warehouse is roughly: 505 10th street, Pawnee, IL.

See you out there.
