Deer harvest numbers up over last year

Posted by wlpo on November 20, 2012

Hope you like venison because the first firearm deer season was productive.  The Illinois Department of Natural Resources says that more than 72,000 deer were harvested between Friday and Sunday.  It was 5,000 more deer than the same time last year.

Hunters in Bureau County got 1014 deer, in La Salle County there were 887, and in Putnam County there were 389.

The second portion of the firearm season will be November 29 through December 2.
