Many hunting and fishing permits expired in February, including 2012 permits small game; fishing, trout fishing and the combination permit for hunting and fishing.
The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reminds hunters and anglers to purchase their 2013 permits so they won’t miss opportunities in the year ahead. Conservation makes Missouri a great place to hunt and fish, as well as makes purchasing permits simple and convenient through their online system called e-Permits, which lets sport hunters, anglers and trappers purchase, print and immediately use most permits 24-hours-a-day.
Simply visit http://mdc.mo.gov and click on “Buy Permits” from the MDC homepage. All sport-fishing and sport-hunting permits are available through e-Permits, along with trapping permits and the Apprentice Hunter Authorization.
Commercial permits and lifetime permits will continue to be sold through MDC’s Central Office by calling 573-751-4115. People can still purchase permits from vendors, if they’d like, by calling 1-800-392-4115. Phone purchases are subject to a $2 convenience fee, while the fee for online permits purchases are $1.
