1. Landowner permits are available for residents who own five continuous acres of land, and for any household resident who is age 6 or older, the state Department of Conservation said.

2. Missouri residents may hunt or trap on their own property without a permit, with the exception of deer, turkey, and some kinds of waterfowl. Still, hunters need to comply with regulations on seasons, hunting methods, bag limits and checking requirements, the DOC said.

3. Among those who may purchase resident deer and turkey permits are residents who have had a permanent home address in Missouri for at least 30 days; residents who are federal government employees working in Washington, D.C.; members of the U.S. armed forces; and non-residents who are attending school in Missouri.

4. There are a number of websites that allow potential lessees to find landowners who will allow hunting on their property. There also are plenty of options for leasing, including annual leases, limited-duration leases (for a particular season) and short-term leases (potentially for a week or a weekend of hunting).

"Depending on land management objectives, development of a hunting lease enterprise offers many landowners the opportunity to supplement their income while enhancing wildlife habitat on their property," the University of Missouri said.
