Hunting

Mississippi offers some of the greatest hunting anywhere in the country and is especially bountiful in white-tailed deer, waterfowl and eastern wild turkeys. Other species abound as well, including feral hogs, rabbits, squirrels, mourning doves and bobwhite quail. Our generous hunting seasons and bag limits, along with substantial conservation efforts, ensure that you will be able to find incredible hunting grounds throughout the state. Mississippi has over 1,000 square miles of public hunting lands in 53 wildlife management areas, along with nine national wildlife refuges. In addition to the state’s public lands, there are private lands and commercial outfitters waiting to give you the opportunity to venture out on the hunt of a lifetime.
