DNR: 99,000 deer taken during Ill. firearm season
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — The Illinois Department of Natural Resources says hunters harvested more than 99,000 deer during this year's firearm season.
The preliminary total of 99,324 deer is about 2,500 more than last year.
Illinois' firearm season was held Nov. 16-18 and Nov. 29-Dec. 2. IDNR Forest Wildlife Program Manager Paul Shelton says hunters likely benefited from the split season this year because the weather was different.
