Numbers Up for Early Portion of Youth Deer Season

Preliminary data from the Missouri Department of Conservation shows that young hunters ages six through 15 harvested 17,222 deer during Missouri's early youth portion of the 2017 deer hunting season on Saturday and Sunday.  That's up from 11,171 deer last year.  Top counties were Osage with 380, Howell with 377, and Franklin County with 354.  Conservation Biologist Barb Keller says the weather was much better this year with high's in the 40's and 50's both days.  Last year, the temperature was in the 80's.
