I read somewhere that Washington was hosting a series of meetings around the state this spring specifically looking at the archery season. Here in Illinois there is a move afoot to make wholesale changes to the seasons and tag structure. Currently a bowhunter can buy virtually unlimited tags and the numbers of deer harvested has equalled the total number of hunters making it look like Illinois bowhunters have 100% success. Outfitter manipulation of the herd through the importation of trophy breeder bucks released into wild stock brought CWD. The combined harvest numbers are way down and the number of deer found dead way up.
