SECOND FIREARM DEER SEASON THIS WEEKEND
The second Illinois Firearm Deer Season is coming up this Thursday through Sunday. During the first season, just two weeks ago, hunters in Illinois harvested just over 85,000 deer. The numbers in Bond County were around 880, up from last year.
The temperatures for this weekend should be a cooler compared to two weeks ago, but hunters are still urged to use extra precaution when it comes to handling and storing their deer.
Hunters in Illinois are allowed to start one-half hour prior to sunrise and stay out one-half hour after sunset.
The IDNR reminds you to check-in your deer on the day you take it by visiting www.dnr.state.il.us/vcheck or by calling 1-866-IL-CHECK.
