We are blessed with an abundance of wildlife and habitat resources allowing many opportunites to enjoy the hunting heritage of our beautiful State. At Sartain’s Heritage Properties, we take the hunting heritage part seriously.
There is nothing like the excitement of an opening day September dove hunt, the site of a mature buck moving stealthily through the hardwoods, or a group of waterfowl cupping into your decoy spread.
Check the seasons, get in the outdoors with family and friends, always remember to hunt safely and enjoy the bounties of Mississippi.
Squirrel and Rabbit Hunting present a great opportunity to introduce a youth to the great outdoors. Take the time to take a kid hunting this year!
MS Youth White-tailed Deer Season Opens November 5
While the November 5-6th weekend is dedicated to youth, expanded youth opportunities exist during any of Mississippi’s primitive weapon seasons by allowing youth to use any rifle. Also, a new regulation is in place which specifies that three of the youth’s three buck bag limit may be any antlered buck regardless of antler size.
The youth deer seasons are open on private and authorized state and federal lands. Furthermore, there are youth hunts on all MDWFP Wildlife Management Areas that allow deer hunting.
While all youth under age 16 are not required to purchase a hunting license, MDWFP strongly encourages all youth to complete a hunter education course before hunting. All youth between the ages of 12 and 15 must complete a hunter education class before hunting alone. It is also important to remember that when hunting deer during any primitive weapon or gun season for deer, all deer hunters must wear in full view at least five hundred (500) square inches of solid unbroken fluorescent orange. This requirement does not apply while hunters are in a fully enclosed deer stand.
