Hunter Education Courses Offered By MDC

If you are hunting in Missouri, whether it’s for deer, turkey or ducks, and using a firearm, Lucas Band from the Missouri Department of Conservation says you will likely need to take a hunter education course.

Kyle Lairmore from the MDC says there are two parts to the Hunter Education course.
