Mississippi Hunting Land for Sale - Land Broker MLS

The Mighty Mississippi River begins at northern Minnesota's Lake Itasca, flowing 2,320 miles southward to the Gulf of Mexico. It borders the western side of the State of Mississippi and its coastal plain takes up most of the state. Mississippi's northeastern corner is rather hilly though and includes the state's high spot, Woodall Mountain in Tishomingo County, at 807 feet above sea level.

Mississippi's soil is rich along its plains, prairies, and woods, making for good agricultural lands. A little more than one-third of the state is farmland, and a major portion of the state is made up of wetlands due to its abundance of rainfall and waterways. The deer population is thriving here, and so are turkeys. The major Mississippi Flyway follows the river southward through the state bringing an abundance of waterfowl with mallards and wood ducks wintering in the Alluvial Valley, along with gadwall, green-winged teal, and other ducks.

Hunting Season and Land for Sale

The hunting season for whitetail deer varies by zone and with weapon choice, beginning in early October. Duck stamps are required for hunting waterfowl, even on private land. Private land permits for alligator hunting are allowed in 34 of the state's 82 counties, with a required 20 acres of permanent surface water for one permit voucher.

Throughout the state, there is a lot of hunting land for sale from two to three acres to upward of 100 acres or more. Many tracts are multi-use some with timberland and some with farmland. And, with all that water there is great fishing most anywhere with streams and ponds filled with such catch as bass, bream, catfish, and perch. Depending upon location, pricing can be found as low as $1,000/acre and up. Of course, expect to spend more if the land includes a home and outbuildings.

Added Income

When looking to make some income from your land, consider some farming or a timber operation for the larger properties. Or, in recent years there has been an increased interest in private hunting lands with lodges or cabins for the urbanite to visit, or visitors from other states to stay. With continued use of public hunting lands, the prospect for a good catch tends to be better on private, less disturbed lands. If you are inclined to the hospitality business and looking to make a living off the land, it's a definite consideration.
