My hunting buddy is stuck doing Hell Week with his frat. on Sat., and I always like to have someone with me in case things go wrong (example: opening day in North zone I got stuck in a mud flat) So my girlfriend decided she wants to see what all the hooplah is about duck hunting. My problem is I don't know what the spectator rules are. I know she can't touch a gun, or carry ducks, but she wouldn't need tags to just watch, right? In the waterfowl digest it says you need a permit if you are going to "pursue, take, possess, and transport ducks, coots, and geese in MO." So ... can she go without a tag? and what are her limitations?

I dont know how far they take the pursue part. All I know is that you have to have a permit to drive the boat. It would be a good idea to call the conservation office in Columbia.

You're fine as long as you don't have more than one limit or more than one shotgun with you.

If you are talking about private ground, I know it's not a problem. If you are talking about one of the draw in CA's, you would be better off calling and checking it out with them.

Thanks for your help guys. I think we should be fine, but I guess I'll call an agent just to be safe. Don't want to ruin this whole year over one day. :thumbsup:
