Frogging is a great way to enjoy Missouri’s fish, forest, and wildlife resources while also putting food on the table the whole family can enjoy. Join the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) for a free clinic on frogging for beginners, 5 p.m. – 11 p.m. on Friday, July 5, at Locust Creek Conservation Area near Milan. The clinic is free and open to ages 12 and older, but preregistration is required by noon on Wednesday, July 3 by visiting mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/168080.
Participants younger than 16 years of age must be accompanies by an adult. Anyone older than 16 years of age must possess a valid fishing permit. Children under the age of 16 and resident adults over 65 are not required to have a permit.
This year’s frog season begins at sunset on June 30 and will continue through Oct. 31. Daily limit is eight bullfrogs or green frogs and 16 in possession.
Frogs may be harvested with either fishing or hunting permits, as long as the method matches the permit. With a fishing permit, frogs may be harvested by hand, hand net, atlatl, gig, bow, trotline, throw line, limb line, bank line, jug line, snagging, snaring, grabbing or pole and line during frog season. With a hunting permit, frogs may be harvested using .22-caliber or smaller rimfire rifle or pistol, pellet gun, bow, crossbow, atlatl or by hand or hand net.
