FEB. 21, 2011 -- Starting March 1, Missourians will be able to buy most hunting and fishing permits at home, using the Missouri Department of Conservation's new e-Permits system. The system will allow hunters, anglers and trappers to print permits from their personal computers.
All sport-fishing and sport-hunting permits will be available through e-Permits. So will trapping permits and the Apprentice Hunter Authorization. E-permits will look like the old permits and will be about the same size as in the past.
Commercial permits and lifetime permits will continue to be sold through the Conservation Department's Central Office by calling 573-751-4115. In addition, permits will still be available through local vendors. More information about e-Permits, including tagging requirements for deer and turkey, is available on the Conservation Department's website.
