License Sales Fall Drastically in Mississippi

Big game hunting license sales are lagging far behind last years sales in Mississippi, yet revenue is slightly higher than last year. How can that be?

That’s simple to answer, more fees were levied. Hunters were charged a new fee to hunt on public lands and non-residents were hit pretty hard with new permit fees for deer, turkey and using public lands.

These added fees increased the revenue even though sales of hunting licenses have dropped. Officials speculate it was the result of hurricane Katrina but won’t really know until next season.
