HUNTING & LICENSE REQUIREMENTS

We're excited to have you come enjoy the hunting opportunities at Prairie Wildlife.

Whether you're pursuing Bobwhite Quail, Whitetail Deer, Dove, Squirrel or Rabbit, we know you'll find an exceptional experience here on Mississippi's Black Prairie.

Be advised that before anyone is allowed to hunt at Prairie Wildife, it's important that he or she have the proper documentation:

Mississippi Hunting License
The first requirement is a valid Mississippi Hunting license appropriate for all game that will be hunted and the time you will be here. A license may be purchased at Prairie Wildlife or online at the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks website www.mdwfp.com. The MDWFP site is also a good source of information on hunting seasons, legal game, bag limits, hunters’ orange and other hunt-specific requirements.

Hunter Education Number (if applicable)
Under Mississippi hunter education law, all persons born on or after January 1, 1972, are required to complete a hunter education course before purchasing a hunting license. This applies to both residents and non-residents.

Anyone 12-16 years old must have a certificate of satisfactory completion of a hunter education course before hunting in Mississippi, and those under the age of 12 must be in the presence and under direct supervision of a licensed or exempt hunter at least 21 years of age when the child is hunting.

If you have lost your Hunter Education Number, you should be able to retrieve by contacting the Department of Wildlife in the state that issued your HEN. Use this link www.fws.gov/offices/statelinks.html to find your state's Department of Wildlife.
Remember, Prairie Wildlife cannot issue a hunting license without a valid Hunter Education Number for anyone born on or after January 1, 1972.
