Permit Requirement for Light-Goose Conservation Order

During the Conservation Order, Feb. 1–April 30, residents and nonresidents age 16 and older only need a Conservation Order Permit to chase, pursue and take snow, blue and Ross’s geese. This permit costs $5 for residents and $47 for nonresidents. Hunters with either a Resident Lifetime Conservation Partner Permit or a Resident Lifetime Small Game Hunting Permit do not need to purchase a Conservation Order Permit to hunt light geese during the Conservation Order.

Hunters 15 years old and younger do not need a Conservation Order Permit, but must possess a valid hunter-education certificate card or hunt in the immediate presence of a properly licensed adult 18 years old or older who is hunter-education certified or was born before January 1, 1967.

Note: A Missouri small game hunting permit, Missouri Migratory Bird Hunting Permit and Federal Duck Stamp are not required during the Conservation Order.

“My father and I recently booked a hunt with Scott Croner in Mound City, MO., that was one of the best field hunts we have ever experienced.  As avid water-fowlers, my father and I have hunted from Alaska to Texas and all flyways in between.  This field hunt with Scott & Squaw Creek Hunt Club was one of the best hunts either of us have experienced.  If you would like shooting greenheads at 15-25 yards in December, in the comforts of a heated pit blind I would call Scott.  1st class accommodations and guiding services by Scott and his organization.”  Matt Sattersen
