Jefferson City, MO – Hunters in Missouri killed fewer deer this year than last. The Department of Conservation says this year's firearm's season, which ended last weekend, netted almost 208,940 deer. But that's more than 8,000 fewer than last year, when 217,435 deer were killed.

The numbers are also down in Illinois, though the firearms season in that state has not yet ended.
