Reminders For Fall Turkey Season

Fall Turkey Season is coming up soon and the Missouri Department of Conservation has some rules and regulations it would like to remind hunters. Bow hunting season begins on September 15th and runs until November 9th; it starts up again on November 21st and goes till January 15. Gun season is from October 1st to the 31st. Shooting hours begin one half hour before sunrise and go to sunset. The season limit is two turkeys, which may be of either sex. Both turkeys may be taken the same day. All hunters using a shotgun must affix the “Be Safe” sticker to the receiver of the gun so it will be in their line of sight while shooting. The sticker must be maintained on the gun while hunting. Stickers are available at permit vendors and conservation department offices. For more regulations and information, go to MDC.MO.GOV.

Commencement, it is said, is a beginning. Yet graduations are also the end of an era--for students and their parents. For the kids, it's a time of excitement and promise. For parents, it's a bit more bittersweet.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
