Hunting Leases


The Mississippi Secretary of State serves as supervisory Trustee overseeing management and leasing of more than 640,000 acres of 16th section public school trust lands by 108 local school districts. The Secretary of State and Mississippi Forestry Commission work cooperatively with the local school districts to manage their timber lands.

108 local school districts manage or receive income from 16th section public school trust lands. The local school boards serve as trustees of 16th section lands and are responsible for day to day management of the lands and leasing. The Secretary of State serves as supervisory trustee working with the local school districts to insure that the lands are managed well and that the revenue from leasing is maximized.

Much of Mississippi's 16th section land is leased to hunters.

The Secretary of State's web site provides a map with the location of areas currently under lease, the lease amount and when the lease expires. 

Great info for deer hunters wanting to lease land.
