  • Find it on your Conservation Permit card.
  • Lookup your account in the online permit system.

How do I get a Conservation ID

You will be issued a Conservation ID the first time you buy a permit, or when you pass the Missouri Hunter Education course.

If you have bought a permit in the past, then you will have a Conservation ID. Read the above "Find your Conservation ID" section to learn how to find it.

How to hide/show permits

New functionality offered in the latest MO Hunting app. Users can now hide expired permits on the permit listing page by tapping on the hide icon on the top right-hand side of the permit listing screen.

The hide/show permit icon is located at the top right-hand side of the permit listing screen.

My permits are not displaying

Sometimes there is a lag between when a permit is purchased and when it appears in the app. If you do not see all your permits listed in the app, then trying the following solutions.

  • Refresh the permit listing page by pulling down at the top of the permit screen.
  • Sign out and sign back in to the app.
  • Uninstall and reinstall the app.

If none of the above options work, then use the app feedback form to submit your issue. You may have multiple accounts in the system that staff need to merge before all your permits will display.

Print your permits

You cannot print your permits directly from within the app. You may visit the online permit purchasing vendor site from your computer and download and print copies of your permits for free. Once on the site, click on the“Manage Your Account & Reprint Permits" link found on the page.

Federal Duck Stamp

When you buy an E-Stamp, you will receive an E-Stamp certificate. This certificate is unique to the purchaser and is valid as a Federal Duck Stamp across the nation for up to 45 days from the date of purchase. Within that time, a physical Duck Stamp will be mailed to you. Your E-Stamp certificate may be printed out or downloaded onto your mobile device and must be carried on your person while hunting waterfowl.

As soon as you receive your physical stamp, you must sign it and use it for hunting. Your E-Stamp certification is no longer valid once you receive your physical stamp. Regardless of whether you received your physical stamp, after 45 days from the date of purchase, the E-Stamp certificate is no longer valid. You must carry your current, signed Federal Duck Stamp while hunting.

If you have not received your Physical Stamp within month of purchase, please contact Amplex at 1-800-852-4897.
