MO Hunting Help


Find help on some of the most commonly asked questions or issues people have when using the latest MO Hunting application.


If the app closes immediately after you open it, then try uninstalling the app, restarting your phone, and reinstalling the app. If that doesn't work, then use the comment on an app form to report the issue. In your comment please include the type of phone you have, and the operating system version it is running. 


This normally happens because the app cannot make a data connection to the permit system to verify your credentials. There are a few things to check/try.

VPN Usage

Is your phone running a VPN? Depending on your VPN settings, it could be preventing the app from properly connecting. You can try turning off your VPN while signing in. You can also try to setting the VPN so it is routing traffic only through the US. The app will not work outside the US.

Firewall/Anti-Virus Software

If your phone is using a firewall or virus software, then it could be blocking the data connection. To test simply turn them off briefly and try signing into the app. If you are able to sign in after turning the firewall/virus software, then you will need to add the app to your firewall or virus software’s white list.

Data Connection

Does your phone have a strong data connection. To sign in the app needs a good data connection so it can verify your credentials when signing in. If you are having issue signing in over wifi, then try turning it off and using your phone cellular data connection. If you are on cellular data, then try moving to a location with a stronger signal, or connecting via wifi.


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 try printing your permits from the permit website. See instructions in the Print Your Permits section below.

If you still cannot find your permits, 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.


If you receive a "Session Timeout, please try again later message" when attempting to buy permits on your phone, then check to see if your device's browser has cookies enabled. A session cookie is required to ensure the purchasing process goes as smoothly as possible.

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.
