10-Pointer - Gary "Heat the Grease" Thomas killed this 10-point buck on the opening day of deer hunting season at Oak Ridge in Vicksburg, Mississippi, Warren County. My congratulations to Gary and that is a very nice 10-point!
Online Hunter Ed Class - The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks is now allowing the state's hunters to complete a mandatory education course online.
The internet course, "Today's Hunter In Mississippi," can be found at the agency's website, mdwfp.com. The class is video-narrated and interactive. The certificate from the online course can be presented as a digital or paper copy to license vendors to purchase a hunting license.
Residents under 16 who choose to take the internet course will still need to attend a three-hour classroom course before being certified.
The next classroom course offered in Warren County is scheduled for October 19, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Fisher Ferry Fire Department on Lee Road.
Registration for the classroom class must be done online at education.mdwfp.com/Web/Event/CountySelection.
