Quail Hunting in Mississippi




There are a number of public lands that are open to quail hunting in Mississippi, including Wildlife Management Areas (WMA), National Forests, National Wildlife Refuges, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lands (see links below). The presence and abundance of quail on these areas vary depending on habitat quality and quantity. Always check area regulations for open season dates and bag limits. A Wildlife Management Area User Permit (may be purchased anywhere hunting licenses are sold) is required of anyone using a WMA, unless exempt from purchasing a hunting and fishing license. For other public lands, consult the administrative agency for information on regulations and permits that may be required.

For more information on quail hunting opportunities, contact Rick Hamrick by email at or contact our Jackson Office at (601) 432-2199, Monday - Friday, 8 am - 5 pm.
