JACKSON, MS - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is proud to again take part in the National Hunting and Fishing Day. September marks the beginning of hunting season for most people in the Magnolia State. Whether you hunt doves, attend hunting camp workdays, or enjoy slightly better fishing weather this month has you busy enjoying Mississippi’s great outdoors.
Governor Phil Bryant signed a proclamation, again this year, marking September 22 as National Hunting and Fishing Day. Last year Mississippi hunters and anglers generated over $33 million dollars through the American System of Conservation Funding and helped support our state’s economy by spending more than $2.2 billion while engaging their pursuits. “Hunting and fishing are huge economic boosters for our state and while MDWFP leads the charge in conservation we must all work together to ensure that our traditions and hunting heritage continue for our children and grandchildren,” said Governor Bryant.
Make a new hunter or angler this year by taking a friend and enjoying some time in Mississippi’s great outdoors.
