Deer Hunting Pressure

We currently have over 165,000 leased acres in Missouri, Kansas and Iowa spread across 79 counties. MAHA has a total of 1,036 deer hunting spots. The average deer spot is 160 acres m/l.  

In 2020 we had a total of 385 deer hunters. This included the archery, muzzloader, and the firearms deer seasons in Missouri, Kansas, and Iowa. 

If all 385 deer hunters hunted at the same time, that would average 429 acres per deer hunter. Not all of our land has a huntable deer population, but most of it does.

Trophy Restrictions

The Association does not have trophy restrictions.  The vast majority of our deer hunters are looking to harvest a four plus year old animal.  We encourage everyone to hunt the deer of their choice and believe the “Trophy” is in the eye of the beholder. Youth hunters may harvest any legal buck or doe.
