    New permits to save seniors money, boost federal funding

    JEFFERSON CITY—A new set of permits created by the Missouri Conservation Commission at its September meeting will save money for Missourians approaching retirement age while ensuring that the Show-Me State takes full advantage of federal wildlife funding.

    The commission created a new class of “forever” hunting and fishing permits. The idea is one of many that emerged from a year-long review of hunting and fishing permits and associated regulations by the Missouri Department of Conservation Regulations Committee.

    Conservation Commission approves permit changes

    JEFFERSON CITY—The Missouri Conservation Commission has approved hunting and fishing permit changes to simplify the system and entice new hunters while maintaining conservation funding.

    The Commission approved the changes at its meeting Sept. 26 in Poplar Bluff. Conservation officials said the changes are aimed at simplifying the permit structure, making age and hunter education requirements more consistent and encouraging greater participation by young outdoors people.

    Had to many people buying 5 ac. plots and getting free permits. Trying to up the income some as the fishing and hunting permit sales have dropped drastically the last 8 yrs. Guess some of the baby bommers are getting to old to hunt and not a enough youngsters to pick up the slack. They also cut out leeses who do not live on the land.

    I heard the hunting and fishing permits are going up $2 to $3 dollars also. Still a lot cheaper than other states. I support our conservation department on what they are doing to keep what we have.
