Blaze Orange Back In Fashion With Firearm Deer Season

Posted by wlpo on December 2, 2011

Arguably the most popular hunting season in Illinois finishes up this weekend.

The second and final part of the firearm deer season runs thru Sunday. During opening weekend last month, hunters in Bureau County took out 905 deer. In La Salle County 812 deer were killed with 324 in Putnam County.

Anyone who shoots down a deer in La Salle County has to have it tested for Chronic Wasting Disease. The checkout station is at Buffalo Rock State Park.
