Firearm Deer Hunt Numbers Released
More than 99,000 deer were harvested during this year's firearm season. That's according to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. That total is about 2,500 more than last year.
Illinois' firearm season went from November 16-18 and November 29-December 2.
DNR officials said the warm, spring-like conditions probably helped numbers. The state's three-day muzzle loader season kicks off today and runs through Sunday.
