MO: MDC conducts 'spot check' for deer hunting violations

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 check" on Sunday.

Todd Houf, Callaway County conservation agent, said a couple of agents were staked out on the overpass, watching the vehicles passing by underneath 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 the needy.
