Missouri’s frogging season is starting soon.

From sunset on June 30 until Oct. 31, Missourians will be allowed to capture bullfrogs and green frogs. Conservation officials say the taste and texture is similar to fish.

Either a fishing or a hunting permit can be used, and frogs can be taken by a variety of methods including hand, net, bow and pole and line. With a hunting permit, Missourians can bag hoppers by using a rifle or pistol, pellet or bow.

A frog that has been speared must be kept. Artificial light can be used while frogging, and the daily limit is eight frogs. The possession limit is 16.
