The time to prepare for hunting season is now

Now is the time for hunters to start preparing for hunting season. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police says trees should be checked to make sure they are safe. Captain John Williamson says that he can let the deer have time to lie down before he goes hunting for them.

Williamson says now is also a good time to take hunter safety courses. Squirrel season has started, pigeon season starts on September 1st, and archery season starts on October 1st.
