Managed Waterfowl Hunts

Managed hunts keep the resource healthy and optimize the waterfowl hunting experience.

Three ways to participate

  1. Waterfowl Reservations online (must be a Missouri resident with a conservation number). See Waterfowl Reservations below.
  2. Quick Draw online (must be a Missouri resident with a conservation number). See Quick Draw below.
  3. Nonresidents can draw from an area's Poor Line the morning of the hunt. See Waterfowl Drawing Procedures below.

Both residents and nonresidents can hunt with a reservation or Quick Draw holder, and hunting parties are limited to four people.
