Fall Hunting Permits Now Available
It may be hard to think about hunting with the summer temperatures hovering near triple digits, but it’s just over a month until Missouri’s dove season opens on Sept. 1. Dove hunters will need a Migratory Bird Hunting Permit ($6) in addition to their Small Game Hunting Permit. While the Small Game Hunting Permits have been available since last December, the Migratory Bird Hunting Permit and permits for this fall’s deer and turkey hunting became available for purchase on July 1. Obtaining them now will let you avoid any last-minute rush prior to your favorite season opening.
In addition to obtaining permits at the usual Missouri permit vendor locations, hunters can purchase permits online using the e-Permits System at http://mdc.mo.gov/permits/e-pe
Maybe carrying those fall hunting permits in your wallet will help you to bear the summer heat, because they will be reminders that cooler weather and hunting trips are in your future.
