Last-Minute Quick Draw Update

Oct 19, 2010

With the start-up date for Quick Draw waterfowl hunting applications just days away, many hunters are checking the MDC Web page to see how it works. Actually, you can't. The system isn’t online yet. However, I can tell you it is super simple. All you will do is enter the conservation ID number printed on your small-game hunting permit and choose an area for each day you want to hunt.

The launch of the system will be prominently advertised Friday on the main MDC website, mdc.mo.gov. I recommend that you read through the information between now and Friday to refresh your memory about details of the system. But the application itself could not be simpler.

Comments

Rich, obviously you are not interested in getting drawn in to hunt one of the quick draw areas this year.

Rich, I'll be very interested to see if you hold the same opinion AFTER the season.

Kudos- I am not one that wants change for the sake of change but this quick draw system should be expanded for all waterfowl hunting areas Thanks for your great program and look forward to using it
