Driving home today, counted 92 dead deer by the rd between Bevier and Wentzville. Maybe we should ban cars/trucks.

MDC should test these deer instead of killing more for CWD research. :thinking:

So many dead dear, someone must of driven that route with an xbow in their truck. :tup: :D

I have noticed a lot of them on 47 hwy as well. i dont know the reason for it but have been told that it seems to Green up quicker along the roads and the salt content from the winter. I dont know if those are legit reasons but whats been said to me

Another thing I noticed is they all appeared to be pretty small deer, maybe I was just seeing things.

How many were months old? With this winters temps and snow, decomposing would take longer and the scavengers would take awhile chewing on frozen deer.
A lot of them were old carcasses, but there were a lot of freshies too.

I think the logistics of chasing down every road kill and sampling them is untenable.

I had to go to Des Moines for work Wednesday and Thursday. I took highway 63 and counted at least 200 deer. That was from St James to the state line. There was 15 dead all together in a 50 foot stretch. Most deer I have ever seen dead in one year.
