Beginning July 1, 2016, deer hunters can apply online through the Missouri Department of Conservation’s website for a shot at more than 100 managed deer hunts throughout the state.

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 for people with disabilities.

The managed deer hunt application period is July 1 - 31, 2016.

Hunters are selected by a weighted random drawing. Draw results will be available Sept. 1 through Jan. 15. Applicants who are drawn will receive area maps and other hunt information by mail.
