My opinions have not changed on the lack of deer situation if anything I feel it is worse than a year ago. Im not seeing deer on my way to and from work, I have bow hunted 11 times and seen some deer each time but for the habitat we have should be seeing lots more, have hunted the timber and plots,talked to numerous friends and farmers in our part of Chariton county and the deer are just not there, and turkey is even worse. I got a nice response from MDC but we still can buy unlimited doe tags, and for that matter I feel fall turkey hunting should be closed till numbers come back, My opinion I feel the MDC is being to slow to react to a situation that is getting worse instead of better. now we have reports of blue tongue and had a case of CWD in a penned herd north of us. Had a guy tell me this morning he took his granddaughter two afternoons during the youth hunt and never saw a deer, this guy has killed numerous big deer he knows how to hunt. I still believe making available unlimited doe tags is huge mistake. I agree with MDC most of the time and would consider them a friend but like lots of friends they still make mistakes, one final point lets take care of declineing deer and turkey populations before we introduce elk in Missouri Finally if this turns stupid I will pull it so keep it nice.
