Deer Hunt Results Are In

Posted by wlpo on December 19, 2009

Numbers were up in the area during last weekend’s Muzzleloader Deer Hunt.

During the three-day season, Bureau County hunters nabbed 96 deer compared to 77 last year.  Hunters in La Salle County shot down 71 deer, up from 55 a year ago.  The deer count in Putnam County was same as last year at 37 while Grundy County’s muzzleloader totals went up from 18 to 23.

Nearly 47 hundred deer statewide were shot and killed last weekend, 300 more than last year.
