Bad news for Deer hunters in Missouri, the Deer population continues to drop and Conservation officials are worried. Reports show that hunters took in just over 250,000 whitetail deer last year which is the lowest total in a decade. Due to the small amount, Conservation officials are limiting the amount of Deer that hunters can get in certain counties instead of catching unlimited amounts. Officials believe the cause of the loss in Deer is directly related to an outbreak of a hemorrhagic disease. A full list of the rules in each county can be found on the conservation’s website at mdc.mo.gov.
