MO Wildlife Code basis for keeping sustainable wildlife populations

by Sarah Ettinger-Dietzel

Conservation Agent for Iron County

 

As deer and turkey season end, avid hunters switch their focus from large game to small game hunting and trapping.

Hunting and trapping of furbearers in Missouri is a time honored tradition that has spanned centuries. In the early years it was feared many of Missouri’s wildlife were on the verge of disappearing. The introduction of ground breaking ecological principles and strategic management practices implemented by concerned Missourians brought the return of healthy wildlife populations, not seen since pre-settlement times.
