Can a person with a felony conviction hunt with a shotgun or rifle?

A: The short answer is, if the person has served time or had a suspended execution of sentence, probably not. There are laws prohibiting the possession of firearms and ammunition for those termed “prohibited persons” by federal statute. Among those who are deemed prohibited persons are individuals convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year and those convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. For a complete list of prohibited persons, or for answers to questions on this topic, please contact your local Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives or the Missouri Attorney General offices or visit their Web sites at www.atf.gov and www.ago.mo.gov , respectively.

While it may be unlawful for a prohibited person to possess a firearm or ammunition, he or she may be able to hunt by means other than firearms. Chapter 7 of the Wildlife Code provides for bow, crossbow, slingshot, atlatl and cage-type trap as methods for hunting.

A hunting permit should be available to anyone who meets the requirements found in Chapter 5 of the Wildlife Code, unless the person has had his or her hunting privilege revoked. Reasons for privilege revocation are a serious wildlife code violation, multiple code violations, failure to pay child support or injuring someone else in a hunting accident. The Wildlife Code is online at www.sos.mo.gov/adrules/csr/current/3csr/3csr ..... Printed versions are available at permit vendors statewide.

maybe in Missouri, but in Arkansas, you can get the local sheriff to sign a waiver stating although you are a convicted felon, he (the sheriff) has no problem with you hunting and/or posessing a firemarm, you are good to go....Arkansas Rocks!

You are correct. A convicted felon CANNOT possess a fire arm, that includes muzzle loaders and shotguns. This is federal law that covers all 50 states.

I hate to bust your bubble but FEDERAL LAW supercedes all state laws and the feds say a FELON CANNOT own a firearm. NO EXCEPTIONS! If you still doubt it call the U.S. Attorneys office in Cape ask ask for yourself, they will be the ones that send your ass off for 120 months for felon in possession.

Please stop commenting if you don't know what you're talking about. I am very familiar with federal laws given that i work in local law enforcement. Felons can own muzzle loader, black powder guns of any type including revolver replicas as long as the firearm can't be converted to use modern ammunition. Feds consider these guns as antiques. The only problem is that state laws may differ and it still may be a crime in certain states, however federal law supercedes state law, but the state law may be more strict than fed law and therefore the state law may still apply.
