    Our family owns land in a subdivision (surrounded by a CA) which currently does not allow any hunting on private or shared land.

    Over the years more hunters have joined and bought land in the subdivision.

    Hoping to amend bylaws to allow bow hunting, I have unsuccessfully been searching the MDC site for Missouri stats of bow/hunting injuries and accidents. At there any links of stats available to provide to non-hunting neighbors? Thank you!

    I'm sure those figures are available. Finding them on the website is probably going to be tough. I would contact either our protection division in Jeff city (573-522-4115 then 0 for the operator and ask for protection division) or call your closest urban wildlife biologist. If you let me know where you live I'll get you the number. They work with local governments on getting archery hunting allowed as part of their jobs.
