With the July 16 2012 Vote the Cape Girardeau Mo City Council Voted 4-3 to allow deer hunting in the city limits. This means Cape Girardeau Mo will not be safe to be outside from September 15—-January 15.  Any Person wanting to be outside to enjoy the fresh air will be with the deer hunters this is a dangerous solution no one will know where the deer hunter is so you will need to find a secure place to take a walk. This is a community with a nick name City of Roses, safe place to live, wanting to be safe for people to raise a family.  I am in the safety field trying to keep people safe, the training & education I have would not allow people in the same area as a person that is deer hunting. I have had over site in very dangerous job processes that have no room for error. We know have one more concern for our safety letting your kids play in the back yard this cannot be done we will need to have more thought where the kids are able to play outside, for you to sit outside, to grill, to walk around the block we are now governed to stay inside. Where there is a secure area it will not be inside the city limits of Cape Girardeau Mo to enjoy life to raise a family. When I grew up in this town I could ride my bike and play outside go to the woods inside city limits with no thought of Deer Hunters, let alone people target practicing with their compound Bow and Arrow.

I wonder how the 2 hospitals and the 1st responders what are they doing for training for trauma and treating for a Arrow impaled in someone. The hospitals have skilled, able, can do doctors, but I do not think any doctor signed on for taking a arrow out of someone.   And the rehab for this person we have state of the art programs with skilled, able, can do people but, the trauma is a big issue.
