    All of this information can be reviewed at the following website address or in any hard copy of the Missouri Wildlife Code. http://www.sos.mo.gov/adrules/csr/current/3csr/3c10-5.pdf

    I will also add the page where it can be found in the physical Code Books you can pick up from local permit vendors. This information is current as of March 1, 2011. Also note, I am skipping around, only including sections relavent to assisting Disabled Veterans.

    I feel this information is under-utilized, and it is information that needs to be more readily available to disabled vets nation-wide.

    My comments are noted in BOLD. Other text is directly copied from the above website address.

    Page 28 in the Wildlife Code Book:


    (O) Any honorably discharged military
    veteran having a service-related disability of
    sixty percent (60%) or greater, or who was a
    prisoner of war during military service, may
    take fish, live bait, clams, mussels, turtles,
    and frogs as provided in Chapter 6 without
    permit (except trout permit or daily tag in
    areas where prescribed), and may take
    wildlife as provided in Chapter 7 without permit
    (except deer and turkey hunting permits
    and the Migratory Bird Hunting Permit and
    Conservation Order Permit as prescribed);
    provided, while hunting or fishing, s/he carries
    a certified statement of eligibility from
    the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

    What this means: Any means ANY. Resident or Non-resident meeting the above requirements.

    Page 33 in the Wildlife Code Book:


    3 CSR 10-5.220 Resident and Nonresident
    Permits

    (4) Any honorably discharged military veteran
    having a service-related disability of sixty
    percent (60%) or greater, or who was a prisoner
    of war during military service, may purchase
    resident permits; provided, while purchasing
    and exercising permit privileges such
    person must carry a certified statement of eligibility
    from the U.S. Department of Veterans
    Affairs.

    What this means: Even if you are not a resident of Missouri, if you meet the above requirements, you can purchase resident Missouri Deer Hunting Permits, Turkey Hunting Permits, Migratory Bird Hunting Permit and Conservation Order Permit as prescribed by meeting the above requirements.

    I would recommend when using this section for deer, turkey, migratory bird or conservation order permits, that you carry a Wildlife Code Book with you to the permit vendor with these pages marked, so you can show them this information to prevent any confusion. Confusion can also be prevented by purchasing your permit from a Missouri Department of Conservation Office when using this section of the Wildlife Code.
