Firearm deer season beginning in Illinois
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 1-866-IL-CHECK (1-866-452-4325).
