From Missouri’s River Front Times:
_[A] six-person regulatory committee of the Missouri Department of Conservation voted unanimously to approve the use of high-caliber air rifles for deer hunting.

“It was a request from a small group of folks who used these large-caliber air guns,” says Dennis Steward, a member of the regulatory committee who voted in favor of the new rule. “These firearms are not Daisy air rifles. They are high-powered, large-caliber, generally very expensive firearms that carry the foot-pounds of energy necessary to take down large game.”_
