Hunting and fishing are key parts of our American way of life, and everyone has a right to enjoy both whether it be for recreation, or for feeding one’s family. With that said, there are strict rules that govern this process and failing to adhere to these rules can result in serious legal consequences.
A hunting or fishing violation is not exactly capital murder, but there can be repercussions if you ignore state regulations. This can potentially include prison time.
Mississippi’s hunting and fishing regulations are provided through the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP).
