For everyone else, firearms deer season will run from November 12th through the 22nd. With additional dates for antlerless and alternative methods. Missouri Conservation Agent Jared Milligan said hunters need to be aware of CWD regulations for the area they are hunting…
Milligan said anyone can volunteer to have their deer tested….
Milligan advises all hunters to get the hunting regulation booklet to read up on all regulations, or go to the mdc.mo.gov website to get the information you need before going hunting.
Something that is new this year.. hunters who are 15 years or younger on September 15th are now exempt from the antler point restriction.
