JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.–Some parts of Missouri will have more deer this year, and a bumper crop of corn will affect hunting strategies. The Missouri Department of Conservation says decisions that hunters make in harvesting deer are among the most significant factors affecting deer numbers this year and in the future.
Conservation Department Resource Scientist Emily Flinn says this year’s mild summer will send deer into autumn in good physical condition. Hot, dry summers, like those of 2012 and 2013, cause physical stress on deer, increasing their nutritional needs while simultaneously reducing food supplies. Deer got a break from the weather this year, with cooler than average temperatures and plenty of food.

NEW HAVEN, Mo. - Thursday morning I had posted the photo above on our Facebook page because I along with almost everyone else was shocked by the drastic drop in grass prices. I possessed the question as to the reason behind grass prices dropping and like myself most people were unsure of the reason.
The most common reason people speculated was because of the up coming November elections and with many others interested in the actual cause I’ve done some digging to try and understand why the national average for a galloon of gas is the lowest since October 2010 at $2.67.
