Browse three ways to draw for managed waterfowl hunts at Missouri's 15 managed waterfowl areas, including Every Member Draws (EMD), One Member Draws (OMD), and Quick Draw (QD).
- All hunting party members of a reservation party, OMD party, and EMD party must be properly licensed prior to participating in the morning draw.
- Refer to Every Member Draws below for detailed procedures about EMD areas
- Refer to One Member Draws below for detailed procedures about OMD areas
- Refer to Quick Draw Procedures below for detailed procedures about QD areas.
- Reservation holders must arrive and check in at the window a few minutes before official draw time.
- Reservation holders must present the proper permits (see Waterfowl Permit and Stamp Requirements below) to hunt waterfowl in the state of Missouri and a form of I.D. at check in.
- After checking in, reservation holders will draw one pill from a draw box filled with numbered pills representing all of the available hunting sites.
- At official draw time, a final call for reservation holders will be made followed by an announcement “The reservation drawing is closed." No late reservations will be honored.
Waiting List Members
- Before the official draw time, every member of a waiting list party at EMD areas, and one member from each waiting list party at OMD areas must sign the waiting list sheet.
- At official draw time, area staff announces that sign-up is closed and picks up the list. No names can be added to the waiting list after the list has been taken into the office.
- At official draw time, and following completion of the reservation-holder drawing, the morning speech will begin.
- Parties not signed up on the waiting list before official draw time will not be allowed to participate. Parties arriving late may be allocated a hunting spot if any remain after the drawing.
