JOPLIN, MO.--- Frogging season kicked off on June 30th and will end on October 31st. To hunt frogs in any public creek or pond in the Four States, you must have a valid fishing or hunting permit. There's multiple ways to get a hold of a frog--- you can use your bare hands, a net, or if you have a hunting license, you can even use a rifle or handgun. 

"Basically, it's going out and getting two of our game species of frogs, 26 species of frogs and toads in Missouri and only two of them are game species. That's the bullfrog or the green frog," said Kevin Badgley, Community Outreach Specialist Missouri Department of Conservation.

He adds, before you go frogging make sure to know all the hunting laws, like the daily limit which is eight frogs. For more information, click here.
