Hunting in Mississippi: Are Safety Courses Required to Hunt in Mississippi? How Do I Pass Classes?

By    |   Friday, 29 May 2015 01:39 PM

Nearly every state in the U.S. requires hunters to pass a hunter education course, and hunting in Mississippi is also subject to this requirement.

These hunter education courses have greatly reduced the number of accidents and help prepare the next generation of hunters in a thorough way. The course is free and offered at various locations throughout the state.

Here are some things to keep in mind about the hunter education requirement in Mississippi and tips on how to pass the course:

1. Age
Everyone born after January 1, 1972 is required to complete the hunter education course with the exception of people age 65 and older, or those under the age of 12.

However, for children between the ages of 12 and 16, they can still hunt without completing the hunter education course as long as they are always in the presence of another hunter at least 21-years-old that has completed the course and has their hunting license.

Also, aspiring hunters must be at least 10-years-old before they can take and pass the hunter education course.

2. Course Structure
The MDWFP has approved four different online course options: Hunter-Ed.com, HunderEdCourse.com, HunterCourse.com, and BeASafeHunter.org. Proof of passing this course must be printed and submitted before hunters can complete the final step of the hunter education requirement, which takes place in person and lasts three hours.

Those needing to complete this education course must contact their regional office or coordinator in order to set up the classroom portion.

3. Resources
The websites mentioned above all offer an abundance of resources to help hunters take and pass their hunter education course and test; some of these websites even allow for aspiring hunters to take the test more than once, free of charge, should they fail the first time around.

These courses are also interactive with narration and video to provide anyone interested in becoming a licensed hunter with ample support so they can pass the course and test.
