The Department created the Missouri Outdoor Recreational Access Program (MRAP) to increase outdoor recreational opportunities on private land. Under this program, MDC provides annual incentive payments to private landowners who open their land for public recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, and wildlife viewing.
The following properties are participating in MRAP. Learn how to visit an MRAP property on the public user information page and how to apply for MRAP on the landowner information page. At the moment, turkey hunting is prohibited on small game hunting properties.
MDC protects and manages Missouri's fish, forest, and wildlife resources. We also facilitate your participation in resource-management activities, and we provide opportunities for you to use, enjoy and learn about nature.
