Youth hunters will have an opportunity to hunt squirrels on Natchez State Park during February 2014. Natchez State Park, located off Highway 61 in Adams County, also provides limited deer and turkey hunts through permit drawings each year. This is the second year that the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks has allowed youth squirrel hunting on the park. The dense hardwood forests at Natchez State Park provide excellent habitat and hunting for squirrels.
Youth squirrel hunting will only be allowed by special draw permit. Youth hunters age 15 and younger may apply online at www.mdwfp.com/draws. The application period will open December 16, 2013 and close January 12, 2014. Hunting will be allowed each Saturday and Sunday in February. Youth hunters must be in the presence and under the direct supervision of a licensed, or exempt non-hunting adult at least 21 years of age while hunting on Natchez State Park. Please review the Natchez State Park regulations and map at www.mdwfp.com/wma for full information on hunting at Natchez State Park.
