The 2019 Youth Squirrel Hunt will take place on Saturday, February 9, 2019 at eight different statewide locations and registration is currently open. These hunts were developed to introduce youth ages 10 – 15 to hunting and conservation. Youth and their accompanying adults will learn about the role of hunting in wildlife conservation, hunting ethics, wildlife biology and firearm safety. Then head to the woods on a real hunt!

The events are provided by the Mississippi Wildlife Federation, Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at no cost to participants!

During the one-day events, youth participants will be exposed to principles of hunting and firearms safety, squirrel hunting with dogs, and the daily life of squirrels and their habitats.
