The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) now offers Missouri hunters, anglers, and trappers a free mobile application for both Android and Apple mobile devices. The new “MO Hunting” app is available through Google Play and iTunes stores.
MO Hunting enables Missouri hunters, anglers, and trappers to purchase and view annual hunting, fishing, and trapping permits and associated details, as well as view permits purchased during the previous year. The app will also allow deer and turkey hunters to telecheck their harvests directly from their related permit within the application through an easy-to-use fillable form. MO Hunting also enables hunters to view all deer and turkey which they have previously telechecked and associated details.
To log into MO Hunting, users will need their Conservation Number. This nine-digit number can be found on the back of their Heritage Card next to the bar code. This number is different from the 16-digit number on the front of the card. Conservation Numbers can also be found on any current or previous permit. For help locating a Conservation Number, call MDC at (573) 751-4115 during regular business hours and ask for the Permits office, or go to mdc.mo.gov/node/5127.
The Wildlife Code of Missouri requires hunters, anglers, and trappers to carry a signed hard copy of related permits with them while actively engaged in hunting, fishing, or trapping. The signed hard copy of the permit should be shown to any officer charged with the enforcement of the Wildlife Code upon request, or to any transportation company or postal employee when presenting wildlife for shipment. After harvesting a deer or turkey, it is still necessary to immediately notch the month and date of harvest on the related permit, telecheck the harvest by 10 p.m. on the day of harvest, and record the telecheck confirmation number on the voided permit.
Learn more and download MO Hunting, along with the free MDC Find MO Fish mobile app and free MO Fall Colors mobile app, at mdc.mo.gov/mobile/mobile-apps.
