Recreation - Hunting Information

Thinking about hunting somewhere new this fall? Then visit the National Forests in Mississippi.

The National Forests in Mississippi provide over a million acres of land available to the public for hunting.  A variety of game is hunted each year on the National Forests in Mississippi. White-tailed deer, wild turkey, quail, squirrel, rabbit, raccoon, waterfowl, and more can be found on the forest.

The Forest Service shares responsibility for managing wildlife resources on national forest land with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, & Parks. This agency is responsible for regulating hunting seasons and enforcing game laws. The Forest Service, mainly through timber harvest, contributes to improved habitat conditions that benefit wildlife populations on the Forest.
