New guidelines on free landowner deer and turkey permits

The guidelines have changed on the acreage allowed for free landowner deer and turkey permits. Missouri Department of Conservation Agent Jarad Milligan said the decision was made to make the change following a public comment period…

Starting this year, resident landowners with 20 or more contiguous acres and nonresident landowners with 75 or more contiguous acres qualify for landowner deer and turkey permits and must submit their property information to the MDC Landowner Registry to receive them. Milligan said this will help prevent fraud…

Milligan said the guidelines firmly establish that if a hunter’s name is not on the property deed, or don’t live in the home at least 30 days, they are not eligible for the free landowner hunting permit. Conservation agents around the state find several hundred violations each year related to the misuse of landowner permits and privileges.
