A Linn-area meat processor this weekend said hunters brought in fewer deer on the first day of firearm season than he has seen in the past. He said hunters used to bring in as many as 50 deer on the first day of firearm season in the past. Last year, he said hunters brought in about 100 deer in total, compared to 300 during normal years. According to the Missouri Department of Conservation, the main portion of firearm season continues through Tuesday, Nov. 26. Hours run from half an hour before sunrise to half an hour after sunset. Hunters may take one antlered deer during the firearms deer season, including the two youth firearm sessions.
