With the shotgun deer season in the books for 2022, DNR Conservation authorities now turn their attention to a slow winter season.
Waterfowl, turkey, squirrel, and a few other seasons are still open but DNR Conservation Police Captian John Williamson says the quiet time becomes paperwork and investigation season for their officers.
Capt. Williamson indicates they are also readying for the ice fishing season. While not cold enough yet in central Illinois, he implores those heading north and elsewhere to be careful. Ice fishing can quickly become a deadly endeavor without proper precautions taken.
