Additional Information

Coyotes may NOT be hunted during daylight hours from April 1 through April 20, and may not be hunted at all during the spring turkey season.

During Deer Season

The hunting of furbearers with dogs during daylight hours is prohibited statewide from Nov. 1 through the close of the November portion of the firearms deer season and during the anterless portion in counties that are open during that portion.

Attention Fur Handlers

The Resident Fur Handlers Permit has been rescinded. Hunters and trappers with valid permits that allow the taking of furbearers may now possess, transport and sell furs throughout the year. Note: Only pelts taken by the permit holder may be possessed, and pelts sold within Missouri to a fur dealer or buyer must be fleshed, stretched and dried.
