Home > Mississippi Deer Hunting Leases
A hunting lease in Mississippi is ideal for hunters who prefer to pursue game in a milder climate. The state has exceptional opportunities for deer and turkey hunters with some of the highest game-to-hunter ratios in the U.S.
Mississippi’s whitetail deer population is estimated to be 1.75 million strong. That’s ten times the number of all hunting licenses issued in the state each year and success rates are high compared to many other states. What’s more, state game officials report a high percentage of harvested deer are older animals.
Mississippi is known for producing huge bucks. The state has logged 109 typical and 70 non-typical racks with Boone & Crockett, the largest of which was a monster 295-6/8” non-typical buck harvested in Winston County back in 1995. The largest typical deer in the B&C books from Mississippi is a 184-6/8” buck taken in Adams County in 2011.
The state has a good turkey population estimated at more than a quarter-million birds. In 2019, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks instituted Game Check, a mandatory harvest reporting system to document gobbler harvests by all resident and nonresident turkey hunters. Nearly 9,000 check-ins logged a harvest of 12,627 gobblers from 81 of the state’s 82 counties in 2019, indicating good statewide distribution
