The Missouri Department of Conservation wants to go the extra mile to make sure that youth that want to learn to hunt have that chance especially if they suffer from a chronic or terminal illness. They have a hunting clinic that will be happening this October.

The Missouri Department of Conservation shared the news of this good-hearted event coming up in Unionville on October 29 on their official website.  Here are some of the details they provided in their press release:

The clinic will take place 3:30–8:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 29, at the Rest Inn Him Lodge and Retreat Center in Unionville. Participants will learn about deer biology and habitat, hunting safety and shooting skills, ammunition and firearm selection, methods, and regulations. Participants will have time to go fishing and participate in other activities around deer camp. Over the weekend, youth will head afield for a mentored deer hunt.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
