How to Find a Place to Hunt

September 24, 2020

If you are new to the area or new to hunting there are resources to help you find hunting land.

Today we are one week from opening day of the Mississippi archery season and the cool weather that is in the air has only intensified the excitement for October 1st.

If you are new to the the Southwest Mississippi area or even new to hunting there are sources out there to help you break into the beautiful Mississippi outdoors.  

First find like minded people, fellow workers, friends, church members and just talk to them about your desire to hunt. Even if they don't hunt most likely they know someone who does. Hunters by and large are good folks and will not mind helping a new hunter or someone new to the area find a place to hang their stand and get started. The FIRST thing you need to do is just start the conversation and you may have a hard time getting away from it.

The next place to start is the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks website for Wildlife Management areas and National Forests. We are blessed in Mississippi to have thousands of acres of prime deer, turkey, duck and other small game hunting land available to us and most can be hunted for free.

Another source is your local Quality Deer Managment Association volunteers. Our local branch is the Southwest Mississippi QDMA Branch. Bruce Gray serves as President  601-754-5592 and Keith Kavitz as Vice President 601-201-4048.
