Missouri hunters will take part in a pilot program this fall to make waterfowl hunting at three state-owned wetland areas less of a gamble.

50 Years of Missouri Turkey

Happy 50th anniversary Missouri turkey hunters! Last spring’s hunting season marked 50 years of the annual rite that Missourians enjoy so much. Missouri’s modern spring hunting began in 1960 with a three-day season in 14 counties. Six hundred ninety-eight hunters harvested 94 turkeys.
