Harvest during first season of spring turkey hunting in Illinois’ north zone mirrors the upturn seen in harvest in the first two seasons in the south zone. Yeah, I was happy to do my part to pump up the numbers (above).

Here is the word from Chris Young, the communications director for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources:

First season in the North Zone concluded with a preliminary harvest of 2,343, up from 1,848 last year. Fifty counties were up, 11 were down, and five remained the same. A spreadsheet with preliminary results is attached.
