The Missouri Department of Conservation announced that strange spring weather continues to influence the fortunes of Missouri hunters. Archery deer and turkey hunters should be thinking about the April freeze and subsequent floods as they take to the woods. Missouri’s archery deer and turkey season has two segments. The first opens September 15th and runs through November 9th. The second runs from November 21st through January 15th, 2008. Hunters will find it easier to find deer, thanks to the uncommonly severe freeze that occurred statewide in April. With remarkably warm weather in March, turkey hens already had begun laying eggs when the freeze hit. The double whammy of cold and rain however, resulted in a terrible hatch this year for turkeys, and the final blow came when heavy rain plagued re-nesting in June and July.
