The smell of fall is in the air, and you have buck fever. But you're sitting in your armchair in the middle of September, waiting for November to roll around so you can go back to Mississippi. And with more than 1.7 million deer in the state; it is no wonder you are thinking about this deer hunting paradise. But it doesn't have to be that way. There is a way to increase your deer hunting days afield and experience some of the most challenging hunting around today. A deer hunt in Mississippi is your ticket to keeping your skills tuned and your freezer full.
Mississippi Outfitter's bow hunter package is just the ticket to begin the deer hunting season amidst the brilliant Fall colors of October. Success is improved by the calming effect on the deer from the long, hot summer and their established movement patterns. Very similar to our gun hunts for whitetail deer, our bowhunts provide all of the necessities for the serious bowhunter, including ranges to sharpen your skills.
If bowhunting is not
your bag, we have gun and primitive weapon hunts. Like our bowhunting
areas, the prime deer hunting areas in Mississippi employ a deer management
program to maintain deer density and physical condition, improve antler
development and allow the harvest of both sexes. This allows the hunter
a better chance for a trophy deer. Harvesting a buck weighing more than
200 pounds is not uncommon. Our outfitters carefully select locations
for our tree stands, which have been constructed for safety and comfort.
The stands are in position weeks prior to the season and our experienced
outfitters scout regularly to move stands when the deer change their movements.
Mississippi's vast bottomland hardwood swamps have "turkey hunter" written all over them. In fact, the turkeys for stocking parts of the Southeast were trapped many years ago in Mississippi. The fertile soil provides abundant oak flats, chufa fields, bahia grass, natural foods and insects. Combined with the proper management, this formula yields what? Long beards.
Unlike dove, our turkey
hunts consist of a one-on-one hunter to guide ratio. This gives you the
advantage of hunting with a guide that's familiar with the regions wild
turkey population, habitat and habits.
Few things are more appreciated than a Southern quail hunt. The fields of Mississippi and its rolling hills offer some of the South's finest habitat for quail.

And while you're here
you may want to sharpen your shooting skills on one of the many sporting
clay ranges. So if you enjoy getting together with a group of friends
for a friendly quail hunt, plan it in Mississippi. Special accommodations
are made for corporate outings and board meetings.

The mighty Mississippi drains water from 31 states and two Canadian provinces. "So what?," you ask. Well that means that, like Arkansas, Mississippi is also on the smallest end of the funnel. And that means ducks...by the millions!
