Deer hunting starts in Illinois

Hunters, get your guns. It's deer hunting season in Illinois. The annual firearm hunting season starts today and runs through Sunday. Then it picks up again for another four days between Dec. 5 and Dec. 8. Bow hunting season runs much longer. According to the Department of Natural Resources, the number of deer killed last year with bows and firearms was about 180,000. The highest density of deer in Illinois are typically in the woods along the watersheds of the Mississippi, Rock, Illinois and Kaskaskia rivers and in the Shawnee Hills in Southern Illinois. Hunters can give the deer to the IDNR for donation to food pantries around the state.

   Sunset Hills aldermen are expected to give final approval at their next meeting to a measure that will allow bow hunters to hunt deer inside the city limits.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that aldermen gave initial approval this week to a plan aimed at controlling the rising deer population.  

   Under the plan, bow hunters would need a valid hunting license and an insurance policy or indemnity bond worth at least two-million dollars.  They'd have to hunt from a 10 foot high deer stand and only on parcels of one acre or larger.  

   Officials will host a forum next Tuesday evening at 7 (Aug. 20) at City Hall to answer residents' questions.
