Fountain Grove Conservation Area Has Flood Damage
The Missouri Department of Conservation, or MDC, says they have closed portions of the Fountain Grove Conservation Area south of Meadville for the upcoming Youth Waterfowl Hunting Weekend Oct. 20 and 21 due to flooding on the area. The MDC reports some roads on the area are damaged and impassable due to floodwaters, and it is unclear when all roads will be open for vehicle traffic.
While the number of hunting spots on the area will be reduced due to flood damage, the MDC will still conduct a daily drawing on both days of the youth weekend to allocate available hunting positions.
