Deer season in IL kicks off tomorrow and hunters are grabbing their camo and shotguns. The course was voluntary, and while the impact was not momentous, the number of firearm injuries during the gun deer hunt began to slowly fall off.

Hunting hours will be from 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset.

The law becomes effective at the beginning of the state's annual nine-day period of deer hunting by gun in its millions of acres (hectares) of woods, where white-tailed deer, bear, wild turkey and other animals are hunted. Then, in 1985, an expanded hunter education certification program became mandatory for all hunters in Wisconsin born or after January 1, 1973.

Hunters in most IL counties have to register the deer they harvest online or by phone.

In 1966, in Wisconsin, the hunting incident rate was 44 injuries for every 100,000 hunters. The 2016 kill was down 6 percent from the year before.

The law's signing also came just days after 25 people and an unborn child died in a shooting at a church in Texas, adding fuel to the country's continuing debate on gun control. Be certain of your target and what is beyond it. Keep your finger outside the trigger guard until ready to shoot. Make sure all in the hunting party honor it.

The hunt is part of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Division of Fish and Wildlife's "Take A Kid Hunting" program, which provides for a quality hunting experience for properly licensed youth hunters, often outside regular hunting seasons.
