Active Duty Military

Reduced-cost military permits are for Missouri residents who are currently (or have in the previous 12 months) been mobilized and serving on full-time active military duty in either the National Guard (federal status) or Reserve forces of the United States. It allows them to chase, pursue, take, possess and transport fish, frogs, mussels, clams, turtles, crayfish, live bait, birds (except turkey), mammals (except deer) and to sell furbearers taken by hunting. A federal duck stamp is required by federal regulations for hunting waterfowl and a Migratory Bird Hunting Permit is required by state regulations for hunting waterfowl, dove, snipe, woodcock, and rails. A Conservation Order Permit is required for hunting blue, snow and Ross’s geese during the Conservation Order.

Disabled Veterans

Any honorably discharged resident or nonresident veteran having a service related disability of 60 percent or greater or who was a prisoner of war during military service, may hunt (but not trap) wildlife (except deer or turkey) without a permit but must carry a certified statement of eligibility from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs when hunting, except:

  • A Missouri Migratory Bird Hunting Permit is required for waterfowl, snipe, doves, woodcock and rails.
  • A federal duck stamp is required for hunting waterfowl.
  • A Conservation Order Permit is required to hunt light geese during the
    Conservation Order.

Note: Nonresident veterans who meet the above requirements also can purchase resident permits, for example resident deer or turkey hunting permits.
