Late-winter deer deadline extended

December 02, 2008 at 04:09 PM

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources has reopened the online application system for permits for the Late-Winter Antlerless-only Deer Hunting Season. 

Hunters may apply for the permits in select counties through the online DNR Direct Permit System through Mon., Dec. 8.  No paper applications for these permits can be accepted at this time. 

The Late-Winter Antlerless-only Deer Season is Jan. 16-18, 2009. 

Due to a change in designating some northern Illinois counties for the upcoming Late-Winter season, some hunters missed the previous application deadline on Nov. 14. 

To accommodate those and other hunters, the online application system has been reopened through Dec. 8. 

Click here to start the application process.

The Late-Winter Antlerless-only Deer Season is open to Illinois residents only.

Is it really because of the “late designation of some Illinois counties” or, perhaps, because the first season totals were down almost 16%?

Does anybody know what the new counties are? I haven’t been able to find a list of the new counties.  I am hoping for Livingston..but it probably will not happen.

Last year they were over the counter. So has that changed?

If I have left over anterless muzzleloader tags can they be used in the late winter anterless season or do I have to purchase a tag specific to that season?
Comment: there are many factors that come into play in seeing deer and not seeing dear. Natural and human factors. Rut being early or late, weather, changing of food sources, hunting pressure. The thought of blaming DNR for not seeing any deer,with out understanding all causal factors is wrong and an easy cop out. During the second season I didn’t see one, based on sign in the area I know there is no shortage. I could see changes in food source, the end of first rut and hunting pressure made the population seek other areas for rest and feed. As much as I would like to take the easy route and blame DNR in my case I’m smart enough to read the natural signs and know better. Each area of habitat is subject to it’s own causes. In most cases you can’t apply the same factors to all of them. I found the deer later in tall grass not moving, laying low all day during hunting hours moving and feeding at night. If you don’t know how to figure out that puzzle, it becomes easy to blame anything or anyone except your own lack of experience or willingness to find them.
