Dead Deer Pay

January 25, 1996
By: Conrad Jungmann
State Capital Bureau

If you hit a deer on the highway you may get you 250 bucks from the Conservation Department. Conrad Jungmann has that story from Jefferson City...

OutCue: SOC

Over 8 thousand accidents each year are caused by deer. Representative Dale Whiteside says his bill will send a message to Conservation officials to manage the herd better.

OutCue: number of accidents
Contents: Whiteside says his bill is designed to get a handle on how many deer are out there based on the number of accidents.

If passed, the bill would give landowners extra hunting privileges and could result in longer seasons and increased bag limits. From the state capitol, I'm Conrad Jungmann.
