Illinois Deer Season Stats
« on: February 15, 2018, 08:55:33 PM »
For those that might be interested, here's a link to the annual summary the DNR posts for deer harvest results in our state.  Our 2017/18 combined harvests were up a couple percent vs. 2016/17, that was a bit surprising to me based on the general buzz I was hearing from my Illinois pals.

If I remember correctly it was some uncomfortable weather, really warm that weekend.

I took my son to Illinois for the 2017 youth season. It was HOT most of the time. He was lucky enough to take a nice buck on the second night and I can tell you that we seen far more deer on that weekend than we seen here in Indiana this year.

It was real hot during that weekend. The deer were held up trying to keep cool.
