MO State Parks Closing for Special Hunts

Seven state parks in Missouri—including Crowder outside Trenton, Pershing near Laclede, and Watkins Woolen Mill State Park at Kearney—will close to the public Dec. 13-14, during which time managed deer hunts will take place. While hunting is typically not permitted in our state parks, the Missouri DNR supports these special hunts, intended to help keep the population of deer down so that park resources are not overly damaged by them.
