Hunting in Missouri: 4 Things to Know Before Applying for a Hunting Permit for Adults

By    |   Friday, 29 May 2015 03:17 PM

Regulations for obtaining hunting permits in Missouri are similar to those in other states, including the need for a hunting education course with proof on each hunter during outings, a hunting license to be carried at all times, and specific permits as needed, depending on the game you’re tracking.

Here are four things to keep in mind when applying for your hunting permit:

1. Hunter Education Course
As is the case in nearly every state, Missouri requires hunters to complete a hunter education course and pass a test in order to receive their hunter education certificate, which enables hunters to then purchase a hunting license.

The only exemptions are for those that are between 16 and 18 years of age are accompanied by a licensed mentor that is 18-years-old or older. Proof of course completion must be carried, which could be the hunter-education card, hunter-education permit, or the Missouri Conservation Heritage card, which has your hunter-education number printed on it.

2. Age
Residents ages 65 and up do not need to purchase a hunting permit, and children under age 15 do not need to purchase a permit if they are accompanied by a licensed hunter at all times.

The alternative for minors under age 15 that want to hunt on their own is to complete the hunter-education course.

3. Military
Active military assigned as a patient to a Warrior Transition Unit, Warrior Transition Brigade, or a military medical center are exempt from the hunting permit requirement; however, in order to trap wildlife, these hunters still need to obtain trapping permission. In addition, honorably discharged veterans also are exempt from obtaining hunting permits.

4. Lifetime

Lifetime hunting permits may be the better option for hunters that know they will be enjoying the outdoors for years to come, or can be a great gift for your son, daughter, or grandchildren — especially since the savings is at least $100 for lifetime licenses purchased for children that are 15-years-old or younger.
