Deer season for 2018-19 has ended and the harvest results are higher than last season. A total of 151,577 deer were harvested which is roughly 4 thousand more than the previous season. Ed Cross with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources says despite higher numbers, the early December storms did bring the numbers down.
As far as what this years’ harvest means for Illinois hunters, Cross explains.
Deer hunting season concluded on January 20th.
