Yearly hunting and fishing permits expire at the end of February.

In a recent press release, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) sought to remind hunters and anglers that annual hunting and fishing permits expire at the end of February, including 2019 permits for small game, fishing, trout fishing and combination hunting and fishing.

Missouri hunting and fishing permits can be purchased from vendors around the state, online at mdc.mo.gov/buypermits, or through MDC’s free mobile apps -- MO Hunting and MO Fishing -- available for download through Google Play for Android devices or the App Store for Apple devices.

Commercial and lifetime permits can be purchased only through the MDC Permit Services Unit by calling 573-522-0107 for an application.
