Mississippi’s hunter-education courses moved online

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks to make many changes in the way it serves its constituents, including how it will conduct its hunter-education classes.

Until further notice, the class will be only available online through https://www.mdwfp.com/education-outreach/hunter-education/.

The online course, which became active July 31, can fulfill any resident’s hunter-education requirement. The internet course, Today’s Hunter in Mississippi, is video-narrated and interactive. The card from the online course can be presented as a digital or paper copy to license vendors to purchase a hunting license.

This certification will be retroactive from July 1, 2019, for Mississippi residents ages 12 and above. Students who are currently “in progress” on the course will receive their full certification upon completion. Students who have finished the course since July 1, 2019, will need to log back into the course to receive full certification (log back into the course, update and complete the personal information page, and download your certificate).
