Second week deer harvest numbers are steadily going up

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Missouri conservation officials say second week deer rifle season harvest numbers are close to matching last years totals.

According to Mo. Conservation Agent Ken West, the numbers have been lighter on weekdays than on the weekends, mainly due to rain.

He says there has been one reported injury incident this week in southeast Missouri, where a man fell from his tree stand in Ste. Genevieve County.

West says the electronic tag system seems to be working great, and many are taking advantage of it.
