Hunter education is required in Missouri, and it qualifies you to buy a firearms hunting permit. Our Discover Hunting workshops teach better shooting and hunting skills. Use this section to find hunter education opportunities near you and online.
Once you have your hunter education certificate, you can buy a permit to hunt for deer, turkey, waterfowl, furbearers or small game. You can purchase your permits online, over the phone, at any Department of Conservation office or from more than 1,000 vendors around the state.
Hunters with physical disabilities may apply for a hunting method exemption.
Before going into the field, you will need to be familiar with the Missouri Wildlife Code , which outlines all the regulations for hunting, trapping and fishing in Missouri. These regulations change every year, and MDC publishes summaries of the regulations for deer and turkey, waterfowl and migratory birds prior to each season. A summary of all the changes is also published in the Missouri Conservationist magazine every February.
