Does the DNR still have a page giving the updated archery harvest by county? Does someone have a link?

We still have about a month left for archery season but as it stand we are down about 6,000 compared to last year. I guess if we are down a 8-10k between gun and bow from last year that's not too bad. I don't if that would reflect poorly on the herd or not.

I've talked with a number of people that say they just didn't see deer this year like usual. I didn't see bucks like usual. Usually I have a couple of yearlings that wonder around during the rut and are seen regularly - not this year. I don't shoot the those yearlings and such.

Has anybody been out this week? Wondering how this warm weather is affecting movement during legal hours. I will be out all day tomorrow hopefully I am near one of those late HOT does! Good luck and shoot straight

Was out yesterday afternoon hunting over a food plot and saw nothing....Lake County.

Not a ton of buck activity by me at least where I've been hunting, plenty of does still moving during shooting light. But that 51 point buck shot down by me over the first shotgun season is ridiculous.
