Nine-year-old Vicksburg resident Drake Douglas bagged his first buck with a bow while hunting with his father, Shea Douglas. The 8-pointer was taken just before dusk from a distance of 10 yards. It was Drake's first kill with a bow.
My congrats to Drake in our great wild outdoors! So proud of you!
Mississippi Deer Season for Youth Starts Today
Deer season for hunters ages 15 and under begins today in Mississippi.
Young hunters are permitted to use any modern firearm and harvest one buck with hardened antler and one doe per day.
The season limit for each hunter is three bucks and five does. The spread and main beam antler criteria do not apply to youth hunters.
Beginning today, all hunters, including archers, must wear hunter orange unless they are in a fully enclosed stand.
