Shortshanks is missing out on a great opportunity. Toddler, too:
- Governor Pat Quinn helped launch the Illinois firearm deer hunting season and promoted the economic and quality-of-life benefits of nature-based tourism and outdoor recreation during a visit to Pike County Saturday.
- Tens of thousands of deer hunters were in the field in West-Central Illinois and throughout the state Friday through Sunday for the first three days of the firearm deer season, the release said.
- There are more than 1.1 million hunters and anglers in Illinois, according to the release. The two sports provide a statewide economic impact of $2.1 billion annually and support more than 22,000 jobs.
Open up some of these Forest Preserves in the city and surrounding suburbs to hunting so the deer aren't running into traffic or starving to death. Bow hunting at the least.
