Disabled-Accessible Waterfowl Reservations


Disabled-accessible waterfowl hunting blinds are available by reservation in most of Missouri's 15 intensively managed waterfowl hunting areas.

  • You or your designee must present one of the following at check-in on the morning of the hunt:
    • a valid, state-issued hang-tag/placard from the Department of Revenue (DOR) for an ADA-eligible driver/occupant, OR
    • a Hunting Method Exemption (Part One Stationary Vehicle)
  • Hunters may take up to three people with them during the hunt. Blinds will accommodate four people.
  • If you were drawn for a disabled-accessible blind, you are not required to be present at the designated draw time. However, at least one member of your party is required to attend the draw, or the blind may be offered to another eligible party at the draw.
  • Party members registered to hunt a disabled-accessible blind are not eligible to participate in the daily draw procedure unless they first forfeit their disabled-accessible blind reservation.

Hunters may reserve disabled-accessible blinds using the pre-season and in-season online reservation system.

Pre-season applications are accepted from Sept. 1 through 18, and disabled-accessible blind pre-season applicants may apply for up to five managed waterfowl hunting areas.

In-season disabled-accessible blind applications will occur once a week and will allocate blinds not reserved through the pre-season application. Registration opens every Tuesday at 12:01 a.m. and closes at 3 p.m. on Monday. Drawings will occur on Monday at 4 p.m. for hunts on the following week. Successful applicants will be notified by email or text message at 8 p.m. following each drawing. The results will be available online at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday morning. There will be no limit to the number of times a hunter can apply each year or the number of times a hunter can be drawn to hunt.

Note: The system will be unavailable from 3 p.m. to midnight on drawing dates.

Hunters with disabilities receive first preference for disabled-accessible blinds. Certain rules apply if a disabled-accessible blind is not being used by a disabled hunter.

Youth Use

If a blind has not been allocated in the pre-season drawing and is not claimed at the draw by a person with a disability (or a member of their party), the blind may be offered to any youth present. If more than one youth is present at the draw, all youths must participate in the draw, and low number has first choice of the blind. There will be no advance period for youth hunters under 16 years of age to reserve a disabled-accessible blind. Youth wishing to hunt from an unclaimed disabled-accessible blind must attend the morning draw.

In a Waterfowl Refuge

Disabled-accessible blinds in a designated waterfowl refuge can only be allocated in the pre-season drawing or claimed at the morning draw by a person with a disability or member of their party. Disabled-accessible blinds in a designated waterfowl refuge will not be offered to youth hunters at the morning draw.

Not in a Waterfowl Refuge

Disabled-accessible blinds not in a designated refuge may, at the discretion of area staff, be placed in the daily draw if not reserved by a person with a disability.


Missouri residents with a conservation ID number may apply for a reservation for managed waterfowl hunts.
