Do misdemeanor wildlife violations show upon background checks? Can they effect a gun purchase or FFL application. I'm in Illinois.

I do not believe so though I have never had a DNR violation in the State of Illinois. One minor off road violation in Wyoming but unless your DNR violations add up to a felony I don't believe you have anything to worry about.

I'm sure there are DNR violations, just like a speeding ticket, that won't disqualify you from making a gun purchase. But I would assume there are some traffic violations and wildlife violations that may get in the way.
