Three state parks will be closed next weekend. It’s part of an effort to manage the deer population. Missouri State Parks and the Department of Conservation have announced managed deer hunts scheduled for December 8th through the 11th at Knob Noster, Mark Twain, and Current River state parks. The parks will close to the public on the 8th and reopen on the 11th. The managed hunts will take place on the 9th and 10th.
