Updating deer hunter 2016 season
This isn’t a blind stab in the dark, as some believe.
I have faith the MDC is acting in the best interests of Missouri’s deer herd and hunters alike. The changes have been made, we must adapt, and now we must wait and see if they work.
The Deerhunter predator series is new to 2016 and specifically designed for bow hunters.
The set is silent and helps hunters get up close and personal with their quarry.
We saw dark days and nights due to rain and cloud cover during the front end of the season which always encourages deer to move a bit more throughout the daylight hours.
Mid-season brought just the right amount of snow, tracking conditions were great, and by the third week of the season the rut was shaping up nicely and peaked during the week of Thanksgiving.

I personally passed on a lot of younger bucks for FOUR years on the property I used to hunt.After several months, the Conservation Commission recently approved the proposed changes, and this is what it means to Missouri hunters.FALL DEER HUNTING DATES One thing that was not implemented was changing the 11-day firearms season to nine days, but I suspect it will happen in the near future.The Almati multi cap comes in Deerhunter’s innovation camouflage or art green, it has an orange top inside for safety when hunting with a party.The cap also features neck and ear protection fabric.
