Your Hosts

     A 2016 Fall Turkey & Deer Managed Hunt will be held.  Applications will be mailed to all who request one after July 1st.  Please contact the Andy Dalton Shooting Range by calling 417-742-4361, or emailing Ali Underwood at to have your name added to the mailing list. There will be a hunt clinic to be announced at a later date.  Attendance is mandatory.
     The Missouri Department of Conservation partners with the Southwest Center for Independent Living to host a fall managed deer and turkey hunt annually.  This event is held at the Andy Dalton Shooting Range and Outdoor Education Center at Bois D’ Arc, Missouri (Map).  This hunt is specifically open to persons with disabilities, who are unable to hunt unassisted.
     A hunting packet containing the Letter of Interest, Application, Statement of Eligibility, and Physician Letter, will be mailed to you upon request.  These forms need to be completed by you, and your physician, and mailed to the address below by the deadline indicated.  You will need your conservation ID number located on the back of your Heritage Card, or on the front of previously purchased hunting or fishing permits.  Upon receipt of all required forms, the staff at the Shooting Range will then conduct a drawing to fill the assigned spots.
     For those chosen to participate in the hunt, every effort will be made to accommodate your specific needs.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided, as well as bottled water, milk, and juice.
     NOTE: The doctor’s certification is to determine if the applicant is overall healthy enough to participate in the event without further compromising their condition.  We will work with each person to see what, if any, type of adaptive equipment is required for their participation.
     If you have questions, or need assistance registering, please feel free to call me at the range at 417-742-4361.  We look forward to seeing old friends and making new ones, too.
     Thanks for your interest,
