As an avid hunter, it’s important to know when hunting season is open and closed in your area. In Mississippi, there are specific dates for each game animal that you want to hunt.
Deer Hunting Season
In Mississippi, deer hunting season typically starts in late September or early October and ends in January. However, the exact dates can vary from year to year. It’s important to keep up with the latest information about any changes that may occur.
Turkey Hunting Season
For turkey hunting enthusiasts in Mississippi, the spring season lasts from March through May while fall turkey hunting takes place from October through November. Again, these dates can change depending on various factors such as weather conditions or population numbers of turkeys.
Small Game Hunting Season
When it comes to small game animals like squirrels and rabbits, hunters have a longer window of opportunity than they do for deer or turkey. The small game season usually runs from mid-September until February 28th.
It’s essential to stay informed about when different seasons begin and end because failing to comply with state regulations can result in hefty fines or even criminal charges. Remember also that safety should always be your top priority while out in the field – whether during hunting season or not!
