Hunting is permitted during daylight hours within legal hunting seasons, which include deer, squirrel, rabbit, quail, turkey, waterfowl, raccoon, and frogs. Some areas are posted closed to hunting to provide sanctuary for wildlife and increase safety around public use facilities. Review the current North Mississippi Refuges Complex Hunting and Fishing Regulations for seasons and regulations.
All hunters age 16 or older must purchase a North Mississippi NWR hunting permit (code 606). Permits cost $15 and are available at the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks website or at any vendor that sells hunting licenses.
A Harvest Report Card, available at all refuge kiosks, must be completed and displayed on the dash of the vehicle so that the name is legible and clearly visible from the outside. Prior to leaving the refuge, the card must be completed and deposited at one of the refuge kiosks.
For mobility impaired-hunters, two accessible blinds are located just east of the refuge headquarters building on Highway 446. Blinds may not be reserved.
