Old Gobbler Hunters-- Old Ways

         The old Outdoor Life magazines I bought when I was a young boy sit on my office shelf a reminder of the days when actually living the ‘outdoor life’ was so different than it is today. I picked up a modern-day issue of that magazine recently and I am amazed how different it is now. It was very thin and so absolutely full of advertising, I had to look hard to find a story.  Just like television is today, there is so much advertising I just lose interest.

Turkey Trespassing
Posted: April 20, 2016

Trespass is a major problem for many landowners, especially during turkey season.  Hunters actively pursue the gobbling birds and can sometimes, either knowingly or unknowingly, cross onto private property.  This can create several problems.  It can lead to arguments between individuals and with two people chasing the same bird it can lead to hunter interference or worse a hunting incident.

Hunting and Fishing With Technology
Posted: April 13, 2016

We have an app for that! The Missouri Department of Conservation currently has several phone apps available to smart phone users. The MO Hunting application enables Missouri hunters, anglers, and trappers to purchase, view, and store annual hunting, fishing, and trapping permits and associated details, as well as view permits purchased during the previous year. This application will allow hunters to notch their permit and Telecheck their harvest directly from their deer or turkey permit within the application, using an easy-to-use form. MO Hunting also enables hunters to view all deer and turkey which they have previously checked and the associated details. In order to log in to MO Hunting, users will need their Conservation Number. This 9-digit number can be found on the BACK of their Heritage Card, next to the bar code. This is different from the 16-digit number on the front of the card. Their Conservation Number can also be found on any current or previous permit. For more help locating their Conservation Number, users can call (573) 751-4115 during regular business hours, and ask for the permits office, or go to http://mdc.mo.gov/node/5127.
