Missouri wants to increase its permit prices for hunting – fishing – and trapping

The Missouri Conservation Commission has given initial approval to a proposal that would slightly boost permit prices for hunting, fishing, and trapping. 

The Department of Conservation says to keep pace with continually rising costs, the agency is proposing to focus on the prices of nonresident permits. 

Under the plan, permits for migratory bird hunting, trout fishing, and daily fishing would rise slightly for residents and nonresidents. 

The department’s online public comment period about the price adjustments will be from July 2 to August 1. 

The state Conservation Commission plans to give final consideration to the proposed price changes during its September meeting. 

If approved, the changes would begin next January. 

Missouri issues nearly 2.6 million hunting, fishing, and trapping permits each year.
