JOPLIN, Mo. – A hunter's work is not done when he or she harvests a deer. How to field dress it, skin it, process the meat and store it for future tasty meals are beneficial skills for hunters to know.

People who are interested in processing their own deer should plan to attend the Missouri Department of Conservation's (MDC) "From Field to Freezer" seminar. This event will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday (Oct. 24) at the Wildcat Glade Conservation and Audubon Center in Joplin at 201 W. Riviera Drive.

Conservation makes Missouri a great place to hunt and fish.

Parkville, Mo. – A proud hunter and the 10-point buck bagged with bow and arrow made the front page of The Kansas City Star newspaper on Oct. 8, 1959. Voris Dibben of Lake Waukomis killed the white-tailed deer in wooded hills near the Missouri River west of Parkville when deer were making a comeback from near extirpation in Missouri thanks to conservation.

"Bags Buck 10 Miles From Downtown," said the The Star's front-page headline accompanied by a center-page photo of Dibben with his bow and the deer.
