The Missouri Department of Conservation will have more than 100 Managed Deer Hunts this fall and they will begin the application for those hunts on July 1st. The MDC says the hunts will include archery, muzzleloading, and modern firearms from mid-September through mid-January at conservation areas, state and other parks, national wildlife refuges, and other public areas. Some managed hunts are held specifically for youth or people with disabilities
Applications for the managed deer hunts are accepted July 1st to the 31st. The applications are screened and hunters are selected by a weighted random drawing. Draw results will be available Aug. 15 through Jan. 15. Applicants who are drawn will receive area maps and other hunt information by mail.
