Deer Season Continues Firearm Totals Were Good

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Outdoorsman and women still have a few options left to get out there and continue the deer hunt if they want. Antlerless season starts on December 27. But the main shotgun season is over and hunters had a good year but not a great one says Department of Natural Resources Ed Cross. IDNR reports that about 81,000 deer were killed over the two weekends of firearm season and the weather held down the second half number.

About 800 more deer were harvested this year as compared to last.
