Cuivre Island is one of three tracts of land that makes up Cuivre Island Conservation Area. The 1,240-acre tract known as Cuivre Island is forested bottom land and old fields. Although the area is accessible only by boat, it has a healthy deer population, and the hunting prospects are good. Missouri hunting laws apply, with a few exceptions.
Access Cuivre Island from Dalbow Road, off Highway 79 near Old Monroe. From there, take a boat to the island, which is located between river miles 235 and 238 in the Mississippi River.2
Set up a portable tree stand or portable ground blind in the desired area. Do not use climbing steps, nails or other gear that may damage the trees. Label all stands with the owner's name and address and remove by Feb. 1. Use portable ground blinds, or make blinds from native willow branches and other shrubby vegetation.3
Take only bucks in archery season. Antlerless permits cannot be used on Cuivre Island. Apply the four-point rule to all antlered deer.This hunting regulation states that all antlered deer taken must have at least four points on one side of their rack.
Familiarize yourself with the gun season rules for Cuivre Island. Single-projectile weapons, such as rifles, are not permitted on the mainland portion of the conservation area. Muzzleloaders, shotguns and rifles may be used on the island within designated seasons.5
Set up a portable tree stand in the desired area. Remember that climbing steps, nails and other similar gear are not permitted. Label tree stands with name and address and remove them by Feb. 1. Use a portable ground blind, or make one from native willow trees and shrubby vegetation. Remove portable ground blind at the end of the day.6
Wear blaze orange vest and cap during firearms season. If you hunt with a bow during firearms season, you must wear blaze orange then as well. Some areas recommend you use blaze orange on your tree stand as well.7
Observe all rules and regulations for hunting. Practice safety at all times. Remember that you can only take one antlered deer during firearms season.
