Firearm Deer Season Starts Friday

Posted by wlpo on November 14, 2012

Get ready to see a lot of bright orange clothing.  It’s time for the firearm deer season in Illinois.

Hunting gets going tomorrow morning and runs through Sunday.  The season then finishes with hunting from November 29th thru December 2nd.

Last year, Bureau County hunters took down over 12 hundred deer, La Salle County over 11 hundred and over 400 in Putnam County.  Over 98 thousand deer were shot down statewide.

If you get a deer in La Salle County, you’re asked to take it to Buffalo Rock State Park to be tested for Chronic Wasting Disease.
