One of the best bowhunting areas in Mississippi, Yazoo National Wildlife Refuge has become a hotspot for traveling sportsmen and women looking to take deer with archery tackle. Deer are known to grow larger in the Mississippi Delta, and deer that qualify for the Pope and Young record book are commonly taken on the refuge. Special youth and senior citizen deer hunts are offered each year, as well as limited draw muzzleloader hunts for anyone interested in applying. Be sure to check out the youth waterfowl hunting opportunities as well as small game hunting for squirrels and rabbits.

Please refer to current Refuge regulations and map for additional information. A Current Public Use Permit is required for access if you are participating in consumptive use such as but not limited to, hunting and angling. Click here to purchase or obtain your permit.
