Don’t shoot the gators in the ponds. It takes a special license and season to do so.
Turky hunters must abide by the following.
Step 1. Before You Go Hunting
Obtain a hunting license (unless exempt) and harvest record. Two types of harvest records are acceptable, a digital record or a printed form. Digital record keeping may be done through the Game Check feature found within the free MDWFP app. Register in the app and it will be your official harvest record. If you prefer a printed form, the form below will suffice.
Step 2. When You Harvest A Turkey
The reporting process must begin BEFORE you move the turkey from its harvest location. Using the Game Check feature, click the REPORT TURKEY button and complete and submit an entry. If there is no cellular coverage where you hunt, the app will automatically upload your harvest when coverage resumes. Using the printed form method, notch the corresponding month bubbles.
Step 3. After You Hunt
Using the Game Check feature, you have no additional requirements. Using the printed form, you must report the harvest through the MDWFP website or by calling 1-800-BE-SMART before 10 p.m. on the day of harvest.
There are Three Ways to Report:
1. MDWFP app
2. Online at mdwfp.com/gamecheck
3. Call 1-800-BE-SMART
Once you complete the harvest-reporting process, you will receive a confirmation number. This number must be documented on the harvest record.
Please do not broadcast corn or other grains during Turkey season. Turkey hunters travel all around the club looking for turkeys. If they get caught hunting over a field that has corn and were unaware it was there it could ruin their season!
It is illegal in Mississippi to hunt any wild animal or bird with the aid of bait. (https://www.mdwfp.com/law-enforcement/hunting-rules-regs/)
