Turkey Hunting in Mississippi

Few things are as thrilling as the gobble of a wild turkey, and few places can rival Mississippi for thundering long-bearded gobblers. Mississippians have a rich tradition of chasing wary spring toms, and over the last three decades, the state has consistently boasted one of the largest turkey populations in the country. With a quarter of a million birds from the Delta to the Gulf, hunters should have no problem finding a gobbler in the Magnolia State.

The MDWFP Wild Turkey Program is dedicated to the conservation and management of wild turkeys throughout Mississippi. Please reach out to us to schedule a visit to your land or hunting club to provide advice and assistance.
