It sounds like the local resident hunters need to petition the wildlife management department . I would never go there to rabbit hunt , but I would like to deer hunt there . I have a friend that leases land in Missouri . He goes there 2 week during deer season and always brings a wall hanger back . He sends me pictures of numerous nice bucks that he passes up and fields full of deer and turkeys . There are so many deer there that the landowner had them shooting every doe that they saw . I forget how many he shot this year , but he sent me a picture and they were stacked like wood by the cabin . I wouldn’t want to kill like that , but they have to be managed at some point if nature isn’t doing it , or disease will do it .
