Conservation Department Experts Clear Up Deer Hunting Questions Toll-Free
The Missouri Department of Conservation is devoting a weekend to answering questions about deer hunting regulations.


Jefferson City, MO - The Conservation Commission made extensive changes in deer hunting regulations this year. Anticipating questions, the Conservation Department will operate a toll-free deer regulation hotline Oct. 30 and 31. From 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. those days, you can call 866/403-3899 and get answers to any deer hunting questions you have.

"We have some significant changes in deer regulations this year," said Conservation Department Resource Scientist Lonnie Hansen. "We think all those changes are pretty well explained in the fall deer and turkey hunting pamphlet that hunters get when they buy their permits, but changes always leave uncertainty. We want to be sure everyone gets good answers to their questions."

Changes in this year's deer hunting regulations include:
New restrictions on the harvest of antlered deer in some counties.
The ability of landowners to check in deer by telephone or online instead of in person.
Increased availability of antlerless deer permits.
Easier availability of landowner permits.
Elimination of farm tagging.
Elimination of the old deer management zones in favor of county-by-county management.
Drawings for lifetime hunting permits for hunters who buy deer hunting permits early.
"There is a lot new this year," said Hansen. "If you read through the deer and turkey hunting booklet and still aren't sure about something, call us."
