Hunting & Fishing

Hunters from all over the nation use north central Missouri for hunting turkey and white tail deer, as the area is home to thousands of acres of public and private hunting grounds.  Sullivan County, which includes the City of Milan, is home to five Conservation Land areas:  Dark Hollow, Locust Creek, Morris Prairie, Sears Community Lake and Union Ridge. These areas provide plenty of opportunity for those interested in hunting and fishing. There are also numerous landowners that allow hunting on their ground with several of them offering seasonal leases.

The area in and around Sullivan County (Milan) is recognized for its abundant harvests of deer and turkey, while still being a well-kept secret. Stop by the Milan Motel on highway 5-6 and pick up a list of the best “huntin spots n fishin holes” in the County. There is room for more hunters in Sullivan County and we encourage you to come try your hand.

You can find hotel/motel accommodations where sportsmen and their families will find a warm welcome, as well as camping facilities, both full hook-up and primitive. You are encouraged to make reservations early and please be sure to check on land use restrictions and hunting or fishing licenses as well as season dates. You can find hunting season dates by visiting the Missouri Conservation Department website at You can learn more about the Conservation Areas in Sullivan County by clicking on the link from the website above titled “Conservation Atlas” or by calling the Conservation Department office at 660.

Hunting and fishing licenses are available on-line at so you can get them before you come and check stations are easily found throughout Sullivan County. The county also has many locations including these Conservation Areas that are great for those of you who enjoy wildlife photography. You are invited to come take pictures all year long with no permits needed. There are plenty of things to do in and around Sullivan County for those family members who are not interested in hunting, fishing or photography so bring them along and make it a family weekend.
