Illinois Sees Increase in Deer Hunt in Firearm Season's First Week

Department Director Joel Brunsvold says the preliminary total of 77-thousand-51 deer is a four percent increase over the first weekend of last year's firearm deer season.

And Brunsvold says the new check-in system to register deer appears to be working well. The system allows hunters to go online or call a toll-free number (1-866-452-4325) to register.

The second part of the firearm season runs from December First through the Fourth.
