JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri's frogging season is about to begin.
The hunting season for bullfrogs and green frogs begins at sunset on June 30 and ends Oct. 31. Missourians can capture the frogs with a hunting or a fishing permit.
Options for grabbing hopping prey include by hand, net, gig or pole and line. People who have a hunting permit also can use a .22-caliber rifle, pellet gun or bow.
Permits aren't required for those younger than 16 or older than 65.
Artificial light can be used and the daily limit is eight frogs. The possession limit allows people to store no more than 16 frogs at a time. After a frog is speared, it must be kept.
