Deer hunters will have a rare opportunity to harvest a whitetail deer in three Missouri state parks during managed deer hunts to alleviate deer overpopulations Dec. 8-9, Missouri State Parks announced. During the hunts, the parks will be closed to everyone except the deer hunters.

By law, state parks are established as wildlife refuges and hunting is not permitted except under special circumstances. However, these special hunts are being used as a resource management tool because the deer population is too large for the environment of the park and resources in the park are being damaged.
