The Missouri Department of Conservation is ready for hunting season with resources for education, wildlife management, permits, recipes, and more.
Missouri’s hunter education course is required for any hunter born on or after Jan. 1, 1967. However, those under 16 DO NOT need hunter education to hunt any game species in Missouri UNTIL they are ready to hunt alone.
Squirrel, turkey, duck, deer, predator, trophy measurement, and firearm safety are all classes offered in the next two weeks. Some are even available online.
