Hunting Land in Amite County, MS?

When it comes to hunting land, there’s no better place than South Mississippi. Amite County is one of the best counties for buying land. Learn more about why in the article below.


Amite County is located in the state’s southwestern corner and is well known for its pristine hunting land. Louisiana borders the county to the south. Wilkinson County is its western neighbor, and Pike County borders it to the east, with Franklin and Lincoln counties as the northern neighbors. With a population of just over 12,000 people, Amite County is the perfect place for those who want to get away from city life or have a hunting camp.

Amite is a recognition of gratitude – meaning “the friendly one.” The river bearing the county’s namesake, which flows through the county, was named by French settlers in commemoration of the friendly manner in which they were received by the [Houma] Indians living along the river.

The county seat is Liberty. The largest city closest to Amite County is McComb, MS, with a population of over 12,000. The county is a beautiful place with a rich history. The land is primarily forested, with some areas of farmland and Amite River bottoms. Amite County is also one of the lowest property tax counties in the state.

Another famous county legend is Damien Wilson, an NFL player.
