1) Number of Deer Hunters in MO? Around 487,000 individuals held a deer permit in 2007

2) Estimated Whitetail Population 1.4 million plus

3) Harvest total for 2006 324,425

4) Harvest total for 2007 300,915

5) Percentage harvested by Modern Firearms / Archery Gear for 2007

13% taken during the archery season; 87% during firearms; some are taken with archery equipment during the firearms season but I do not know how many.

6) County with the highest harvest totals in 2007 Callaway County

With an estimated herd of 1.4 Million, a deer hunter success rate of 87% and Missouri’s reputation for big Boone & Crockett Bucks should make this state a top destination spot for any traveling deer hunter.
