Firearm deer season begins in Illinois

SPRINGFIELD (AP) – The Illinois firearm deer season begins Friday through Sunday and concludes Nov. 29 through Dec. 2.

Hunters harvested more than 98,000 deer during last year’s seven-day hunt. So far this year, about 334,000 permits have been issued.

The legal hunting hours for the firearm season are one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset.

Illinois Department of Natural Resources Director Marc is reminding hunters to be safe while enjoying the hunt.

In most counties, hunters who succeed in taking a deer during the firearm season must register online through the IDNR website or by phoning 866-IL-CHECK (866-452-4325).
