Hunting in Mississippi

With varying landscapes and many natural features, it’s no wonder Mississippi contains many fantastic hunting spots. From early October to late January or early February, you’ll find over 1,000 square miles of public hunting lands in 53 wildlife management areas, along with nine national refuges. Plus, the state boasts many private lands and commercial outfitters to give you the chance to venture out on the hunt of a lifetime.

Thanks to the many naturally occurring biomes found in Mississippi, there are some great hunting grounds scattered throughout the Magnolia State. Many of them are home to multiple types of game and offer excellent fishing spots, as well.

Whether you’re hunting white-tailed deer, feral hogs, rabbits, or quail, let Visit Mississippi help you find the best spots for hunting. For more information, request a tour guide, use our trip planner, check out some of the places to stop, or contact us today to start planning your trip.
