Managed deer hunt applications open July 1

By Missouri Department of Conservation

From July 1 to July 31, deer hunters can apply online for a shot at more than 100 managed deer hunts throughout Missouri this fall and winter.

Managed deer hunts for archery, muzzleloading, crossbow and modern firearms are available from mid-September through mid-January at conservation areas, state and other parks, national wildlife refuges and other public areas. Some managed deer hunts are held specifically for youth or for people with disabilities.

Hunters are selected by a weighted random drawing. Draw results will be available Aug. 15 through Jan. 15. Applicants who are drawn will receive area maps and other hunt information by email, or mail if an email address is not located on the customer’s account.

Details about managed hunts can also be found in the MDC 2022 Fall Deer & Turkey Hunting Regulations and Information booklet, available starting in early July at MDC offices and nature centers, from permit vendors around the state, and online.
