Waterfowl hunting changes
In an effort to promote a safe environment due to COVID-19, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks has altered its waterfowl draw hunts on Wildlife Management Areas for the 2020-21 hunting season.

The changes for this season include:
• Hunters must be drawn to participate in WMA waterfowl draw hunts.

• All waterfowl draw hunt applications (five draw periods per WMA) will be open concurrently from Oct. 1 to Oct. 15, and all drawings and notifications will be completed by Nov. 1.

• There will be no “stand-by” opportunity for non-drawn hunters to show up the day of a hunt for a chance to fill a vacant spot.

• Drawn hunters will have 48 hours to confirm their reservation online before it is returned for a second drawing.

• Applicants who are not initially drawn will be entered into the second drawing to fill any unconfirmed hunting positions.

• Hunting units will be assigned when draw winners are notified.

• Drawn hunters and their guests will be allowed to access their designated hunting unit beginning at 5 a.m. the morning of their hunt.

Applications for WMA draw hunts can be found online at
