Missouri hunting/fishing permits

Before heading out to fish or hunt for deer, turkey, waterfowl, furbearers, or small game, be sure to buy the right permits. You can buy them online, over the phone, at any Department office, or from more than a thousand vendors around the state.

You may need to purchase a special permit if you collect, handle, breed, or process wild animals. For example, wildlife managers, researchers, taxidermists, dog trainers, collectors, and hobbyists need special permits. All special permits must be purchased at Department headquarters in Jefferson City.

Be sure to visit the Missouri Department of Conservation page for more information and complete rules and regulations.
