Missouri deer hunters will not have to worry about shooting a deer whose antlers aren’t big enough. 

Since 2004, hunters have been limited to antlered bucks with at least four points on one side of the bucks rack.  The Missouri Department of Conservation announced it is repealing the previous antler restrictions for a portion of the firearm season from November 14-24. 

Emily Flynn is a deer biologist with the Missouri Department of Conservation.  She says that the restrictions were revoked because of a deadly disease that is spreading. 

Shedding Light on Antler Hunting With Dogs

MONROE CITY, Missouri-- If you’re a deer, the shed season is like an annual loose tooth. You have antlers. They need to grow. They hurt. You will do just about anything to lose them. You'll rub up against fences. You'll jump into stuff to knock them loose. You'll rub your head in the wire springs of a bed frame that some considerate soul has left out in the woods.
