Shotgun deer season closes trails at Illinois Valley parks

Posted by wlpo on December 12, 2014

Hunters and hikers don’t mix very well so for one of the few weekends out of the year, hikers will give way at Starved Rock and Matthiessen State Parks.

The second muzzleloader deer season goes from sunrise Friday through sunset Sunday. To keep hikers and hunters safe, all trails at Matthiessen Start Park are closed this weekend along with trails along the Council Overhang and Ottawa, Kaskaskia and Illinois Canyons in Starved Rock.

The parks themselves are still open.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
