2nd Round of Archery Harvest Numbers

Not much to say about this week's archery harvest numbers.  Harvest is still down but, hunters definitely took advantage of the cool weather that came through Illinois.  According to this week's numbers provided by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, 62% of the harvest came from Thursday - Sunday.   As temperatures level out this week we'll see what the third round looks like next Monday.

Dont' forget waterfowl season is starting this weekend in the North Zone.  

Rick shot this buck last year in McHenry County.  Share your photos with Capitol Outdoors, harvest, sunrises we want to see it all!
