Big Game Hunting in Missouri
Missouri is a state that is filled with some outstanding hunting opportunities. Best known for whitetail deer and wild turkey hunting, there is plenty of other hunting to be found including upland birds, and waterfowl.
Missouri is also the only State in the Midwest where hunters can rifle hunt during the peak of the rut.
No draw! Missouri tags are available over the counter. While not a famous as some of its neighboring states, Missouri deer hunting is still in the top ten states for trophy whitetails. In fact, Missouri ranks as the #5 State in the Nation according to the Pope and Young and Boone and Crockett Record Books. Missouri has over-the-counter tags and good archery and rifle deer hunting seasons, as well as a late muzzleloader hunt. You can hunt with a crossbow during the archery season.

If you’re after a big buck, and who isn’t – look at the northwestern part of the state. Shelby and Knox Counties are the Missouri’s best whitetail deer hunting areas. Northern Missouri is producing monstrous whitetail bucks due to an 8 point antler restriction rule implemented by the Missouri Department of Conservation in 2010. There are “undiscovered” farms in this state that are just about unhunted. Don’t overlook it!
Wild Turkey Hunting in Missouri
