For Missouri residents 16 years or older, the Missouri Department of Conservation is now offering an all-online hunter-education course.

For adults wanting more flexible and convenient options to become hunter-education certified, the all-online course includes videos and animation to teach hunter safety, firearm safety, ethics, regulations, and wildlife management.

Once students complete and pass the 60-question final exam with an 80% or higher, they will receive a temporary hunter-education certificate. For Individuals 15 years or younger, they are still required to complete the blended hunter education course requiring both a knowledge portion and in-person skills session to receive certification.

Missouri’s hunter education course is required for any hunter born on or after Jan. 1, 1967.
