This increase in permits covers 85 counties. The Missouri Department of Conservation also added an additional antlerless season in October. Shelby County Conservation Agent Kevin Lockard says these changes are part of the state’s conservation efforts.

The new antlerless permits can be filled during any of Missouri’s deer seasons. The fall firearms season begins this Saturday.
