CAPE GIRARDEAU COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Saturday opened deer firearm season in Missouri. According to a Missouri conservation agent many hunters hit the woods this weekend.

Friday night Conservation Agents in Cape Girardeau County did catch a couple of people spot-lighting and then killing deer. West says Saturday night agents were patrolling and there were some citations issued for illegal kills.

Agent West tells Heartland News spot-lighting is considered poaching and is illegal. "It's illegal. It's not safe and it damages hunting relation with land owners," said West. "One of the messages we are trying to get across, those folks we don't consider hunters, they are poachers."

To solve some poaching problems West says agents will be out in force this firearm season during the day and at night.
