Hunting with dogs is allowed during this season.
Legal deer include antlerless deer and legal bucks on private lands and legal bucks on open public lands.
Hunters are urged to practice good hunter ethics and follow all safety rules to avoid hunting and firearm-related accidents. When hunting deer during any gun season for deer, a hunter must wear in full view at least 500 square inches of solid, unbroken fluorescent orange. This requirement does not apply to a hunter while the hunter is in a fully enclosed deer stand.
All persons born on or after Jan. 1, 1972, are required to complete a hunter education course before purchasing a Mississippi hunting license. Each resident of Mississippi ages 16 to 64, must obtain a hunting license, except while hunting on lands titled in his/her name.
