HUNTERS IN ILLINOIS HARVESTED MORE THAN 75 THOUSAND DEER DURING THE FIREARM DEER SEASON. 

 

PRELIMINARY FIGURES PUT THE GRAND TOTAL AT 75 THOUSAND 349 DEER SAYS STATE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES SPOKESPERSON RACHEL TORBERT.

 

 

THE PRELIMINARY DEER TOTAL IS DOWN FROM NEARLY 81 THOUSAND LAST YEAR.

 

 

TORBERT SAYS THE LATER DATE OF FIREARM SEASON AND LATE HARVEST MAY HAVE PLAYED A ROLE IN THE DECREASE. COUNTIES WITH THE LARGEST DEER HARVEST INCLUDE JACKSON, RANDOLPH, PIKE, FULTON, AND WILLIAMSON.
