The Missouri Department of Conservation is considering some key changes for deer hunting. The MDC is looking into changing the length of deer season, limiting the number of kills and permit fees for non-residents. For the fall firearms season, they’re looking to reduce the November portion from 11 to 9 days and the length of the antlerless portion would be reduced from 12 to 3 days. According to the MDC, the changes are needed because the deer numbers in most parts of the state are now at or below desired levels. The MDC is seeking public input on the proposed changes and will be holding a series of public meetings. To find out when and where go to mdc.gov.
