What You Can Find
During the appropriate hunting seasons, in the diverse terrain and on the waters on the Lake, hunters may pursue deer, turkey, squirrel, rabbit, dove, duck, geese and quail. Deer and turkey are both popular species for hunters visiting the Lake area. They both thrive in the nearby wooded area and farmlands, which has allowed for a growing population. Because of the booming deer population, there are plenty of trophy size bucks. Doves are the first to migrate to the Lake area in the fall.
Where To Hunt
At the Lake of the Ozarks, most hunting is down on private land with permission of the land owner. Many times you can find landowners who offer land-lease packages for hunting. In addition to private land, there are also some hunting preserves.
Before you head out on your hunting trip, make sure you have the appropriate permits. Hunters may obtain the right permits by purchasing them online, over the phone or from various stores in the area. If born after January 1, 1967, Hunter Education is required for purchasing firearms hunting permits. Missouri law also states,"A person commits a crime of unlawful use of weapons if he/she knowingly...possesses or discharges a projectile weapon while intoxicated." Don't endanger yourself or others and sustain from hunting while under the influence of alcohol. For more information on what kind of permits you'll need for your hunting trips, visit the Missouri Department of Conservation's website.
