make conditions good for deer....according to the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. Favorable weather conditions and the onset of the rut are giving Mississippi's deer hunters good chances for success as the season passed the halfway mark.
"We are seeing an increase in deer movement statewide," MDWFP Deer Program Coordinator Chad Dacus said, "The cooler weather and the rut should have the bucks on the move."
Resident and non-resident hunters need to make sure their license is current. If you're planning on hunting one of the state's Wildlife Management Areas, you'll also need a WMA permit. Licenses may be purchased from a local sports retailer, online at http://www.mdwfp.com/ or by calling 1-800-546-4868. The second youth season and primitive weapon season both conclude Monday, while the gun without dogs season will wrap up December 23.
Bag limits for all season are one buck per day - four points or more - not to exceed three per license year. The bag limit on anterless deer is the same as bucks, except two additional does may be taken with a bow per license year. (Taken from The Vicksburg Post ~ Outdoors)
