Hunter Education Requirement

Any person born on or after January 1, 1967, shall obtain and display an approved hunter education certificate card prior to purchase of any firearms hunting permit, except that a Youth Deer and Turkey Hunting Permit may be issued to any person 6 through 15 years old without requiring display of a hunter education certificate card.

A Missouri Conservation Heritage Card with a hunter education number is an acceptable Hunter Education Certificate Card. The hunter education card need not be displayed if certification can be verified through direct access to computer data files.

Hunter education certification shall be limited to persons eleven (11) years of age or older.

The Missouri Conservation Heritage Card will be issued as a replacement for lost or damaged hunter education certificate cards (fee: two dollars – $2).
