MDC conducts 'spot check' for deer hunting violations Five carcasses
confiscated November 16, 2010
Hunters who happened to have a deer in their vehicle while driving on
U.S. 54 near the Route F overpass in Fulton were pulled over during a "spot

Todd Houf, Callaway County conservation agent, said a couple of agents

them. He said if they spotted a deer in the back of a pickup or other
vehicle, they would radio the information to agents awaiting in nearby
vehicles. The agents would then pull over the vehicle with the deer.
He said five deer that were found to be "illegally harvested" were
confiscated during the check in Fulton. Jerek said confiscated deer are
typically donated to Share the Harvest, a program that provides venison for
