Mississippi has plenty of public land available for hunting, and the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks predicts that great hunting opportunities will be available on wildlife management areas in the northern part of the state.

Before heading out to hunt, be sure to check the regulations of the state you plan to hunt.
