Hunting License Requirements

All persons born on or after January 1, 1972, must satisfactorily complete a hunter education course approved by the Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks before purchasing a Mississippi hunting license. We offer this course at no additional charge to our guests. However, you must inform us of how many hunters in your party will need to complete the course when making your reservation request so that we can allow time to complete the course before your first hunt.

*NOTE: If required, you will not be able to purchase a hunting license online without this certification. After completion of the course, we will need to go online to purchase your license. Please be sure to bring all required documentation.
