Here is the word from Paul Shelton, forest wildlife program manager:

Significant rainfall on Saturday (October 5), primarily in the southern and eastern portions of the state put a damper on weekend harvest,. Harvest consisted of 71% does and 29% males (3381; 1358). Top five counties were Pike (206), Fulton (132), Jefferson (130), Peoria (111), and JoDaviess (108).
