Deer hunters can apply online now through July 31 on the Missouri Department of Conservation’s website for a shot at more than 100 managed deer hunts throughout the state for archery, muzzleloading, and modern firearms. These hunts are scheduled from mid-September through mid-January at conservation areas, state and other parks, national wildlife refuges, and other public areas. Some managed hunts are held specifically for youth or for people with disabilities.

Hunters are selected by a weighted random drawing. Draw results will be available Sept. 1 through Jan. 15. Applicants who are drawn will receive area maps and other hunt information by mail.

You can get more information on managed deer hunts, preview hunt details, and apply at

Details about managed hunts can also be found in MDC’s “2017 Fall Deer & Turkey Hunting Regulations and Information” booklet now available at most MDC offices and nature centers, from permit vendors around the state.
