Welcome to our Hunting/Fishing Website


Hunters must now check-in with Guard Dispatcher prior to 3:30 p.m. to be able to hunt that day.  This is due to the fact that sunset time is approximately 4:40 p.m. and will continually be earlier each day.  Note: This does not apply to raccoon hunters


Bow season ends Thursday, Oct. 26th and re-opens on Monday, Oct. 30th after the Wounded Veteran Hunt conducted on MLAAP Oct. 27-29. No scouting or small game hunting Oct. 27 - 29 except on Sunday, Oct. 29 after 12:00 noon.


We are currently accepting applications for Public Deer Hunting (only have archery season permits left). See Hunting Notice "2017-18 Pubic Deer Hunting Permits".

Hunting Zone 17 is closed until further notice.

Hunting Zone 27 east boundary is the crop fields. The woods on the east side of Zone 27 are off limits; obey the signs.

New Harvest Reporting Procedures:

Upon harvesting turkey or deer, hunter will submit harvest data to the State per smartphone, computer or at a participating check station (MLAAP is no longer a check station). See a list of participating check stations posted on Gd. HQ bulletin board or at TWRA website. Hunter is required to list harvest data on Form 814, request/windshield pass and turn in to Gd. Dispatcher at time of check-out.  

Procedure to report MLAAP turkey or deer harvest data on smartphone or computer: Go to TWRA website and input Gibson County; WMA for a wildlife management area; and Milan AAP.


Revised Hunt Request Forms 814 (Turkey & Deer) are available on the website as printable copies. You can print & fill out for each time you check-in to hunt. You can also fax them or scan and email to the Natural Resource Office for opening turkey, muzzleloader and gun weekends only.
