SPRINGFIELD, Ill. - Hunters applying for firearm permits this deer hunting season can hit the Web.

D.N.R. acting director Sam Flood says the online system makes the application process faster.
The deadline for the first lottery drawing is April 30th. After that nonresidents and rejected applicants can apply for the August 14th deadline.
