Missouri Deer Days
Beginning deer hunters will have a remarkable opportunity to learn from experts at the Deer Days hunting workshop Oct. 6 and 7.
The training is sponsored by the Missouri Department of Conservation and is staffed by its wildlife biologists, outdoor-skills specialists and conservation agents. Topics to be covered include deer biology, deer management, hunting safety, shot placement and game recovery. A practical exercise will challenge participants to follow mock blood trails.
The free event will take place at Jackson Stables in Kirksville. It will run from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Oct. 6 and from 8 a.m. to noon Oct. 7.
Registration will be limited to 50 people. Pre-registration is required. To learn more or to register, contact the Conservation Department's northeast regional office, (660) 785-2420.
