Welcome to the Missouri Hunter Education Instructor’s Association (MHEIA) website. We hope that we can be helpful to you in providing information about Missouri’s hunter education program. On this website you will find information on Missouri’s hunter education requirements, hunter orange requirements and how to replace a lost hunter education certification. You can also find a link to statewide hunter education classes through the Missouri Department of Conservation’s website.
Be sure to check our Calendar for hunter education events.
Our Awards and Hall of Fame pages include the names of Missouri instructors and supporters who have given of themselves to make our state program a success. We appreciate the sincere dedication of these many award winners.
MHEIA is the proud sponsor of the Missouri Youth Hunter Education Challenge, including regional events and an annual state championship, that allows hunter education graduates further their knowledge and skills in hunting safety and conservation education.
