My son has been bowhunting since he was 8 With me, He's 12 now and goes On our place all the time. He carrys a 2-way radio so he can radio home that's 300 yards away. Mo does not require any test for bow-hunting as far as i know, any i hope theres no age limit either. There used to be a 45lb minimum on a bow. But they done away with that.

i thought you had to take a course for hunting to get your permit tags. i dont know they came out with it last year because i had to get one for boating too.

If so mo dept of conservation messed up. I just bought 1 for my 12 year old 1 for my 16 yeard old nephew and one for my 14 year old boy. they haven't had any courses what so ever. they all have conservation cards they just scan the card at walmart and give us the tags.

what type of card like the heritage card

Hunter education certificate requirement
Hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1967, must complete an approved hunter education program and show their card or verify certification through the permit vendor’s computer terminal. Those under age 11 cannot obtain hunter education certification and thus cannot purchase regular firearms deer or turkey hunting permits, but they may purchase a Youth Deer & Turkey Hunting Permit without being hunter education certified.
