JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missourians can soon head out to ponds and creeks in pursuit of bullfrogs and green frogs.
The state’s frogging season opens at sunset Saturday and continues through Oct. 31.
The Department of Conversation says Missourians with a fishing permit can capture frogs by hand net, gig and throw line. They also can snag, snare, gig or use a pole and line. People who have a hunting permit can use a .22-caliber rifle, pellet gun or bow.
Artificial lights can be used. Permits aren’t required for children under 16 and adults older than 65.
The daily limit is eight frogs of both species combined, and 16 is the maximum number of frogs that may be stored at a time.
