NOTE: Currently the mobile apps cutoff leading zeros. If the Conservation ID displayed in the app is less than nine digits, then be sure to add as many leading zeros as needed for your ID to be nine digits long. For example: Conservation ID 1234567 displayed in the mobile app is actually 001234567. 

Your Conservation number is ...

  • Used to track your permits
  • Unique. You should have only one Conservation ID number in your lifetime.
  • Not the same as your 16-digit Heritage Card number, which is found on the front of older Heritage cards.
  • Not the same as your Hunter Education number

For more information about your Conservation ID number, please call 573-751-4115 and ask for the permits office.
