Conservation Department announces deer meetings

New meetings have been scheduled to discuss one of the Heartland's most valuable resources -- White-Tailed Deer.

The Missouri Department of Conservation is now planning open houses at 14 locations around the state. The Department of Conservation is looking for feedback from residents about what they want Missouriâ??s deer population to look like and what combination of hunting seasons, bag limits and hunting methods they want the conservation department to use to achieve their goals.

One of those meetings is scheduled to be held in Kirksville on June 30th in the Kirksville High School gymnasium. The meetings will use an open-house format, so you may come and go any time between 3:00 and 8:00 p.m.
