Legislation vetoed by Governor Jay Nixon that would’ve defined captive deer as livestock continues to be a hot of discussion at the Lake of the Ozarks and across the state. In fact, some at the state capital believe the debate over deer may become one of the biggest arguments in the upcoming veto session. Mike Huffman is the outreach and education division chief with the Missouri Department of Conservation. He says the Governor made the right decision.
This week more than 30 conservation groups announced their support for Nixon’s decision. The Missouri Legislature’s veto session begins September tenth.
