Urban Deer Zone Confusion

Published on: Sep. 28, 2010

A friend just called my attention to problem he had finding information on the MDC website about the urban deer season. He started on the main page and clicked right through to http://bit.ly/ah1cW1, where he found  a wealth of information about the various portions of Missouri's firearms deer season. But he ran into trouble when he tried to use the accompanying maps to determine whether a particular spot he wants to hunt is in the Urban Zone.

The information seemed so complete, he assumed that nothing more detailed was available. In fact, he needed to drill down two more levels to reach the pdf version of the 2010 Fall Deer and Turkey Hunting Regulations and Information booklet.  Page 12 of the booklet has maps, PLUS detailed descriptions of Urban Zone boundaries.

If you are looking at fall deer or turkey hunting information on our Web page and need more detail, scroll down and click on the link that says "Fall Deer and Turkey Hunting Regulations and Information." Then click on the link that says

Resource File: 
Everything you need is there.
This is one case where efforts to make information easy to find and comprehend introduces a different kind of complication. But now you know, and, as GI Joe used to say on Saturday morning cartoons, "Knowing is half the battle!"

Key Messages: 

Conservation makes Missouri a great place to hunt and fish.

Brian: That "peninsula" is in Cole Co. No part of Osage Co. is in the zone.
