Hog Hunting on the Pascagoula WMA, Learning the rules the hard way

Saturday AM my hunting buddy and I went to scout for hog sign at the P'goula WMA. We brought our guns in case we got lucky. On the way out, we got stopped by the rangers and Jackson County Sherrifs. Apparently, in the P'goula WMA, you can only hunt hogs during any other open season for game with weapons allowed during that season. Since deer season is over, our 30-06 and 308 rifles were not allowed and we got citations for that. From now until deer season in the fall, only small game weapons are allowed. Right now it is 22 rimfire or archery. It seems rather silly to hunt hogs with 22 rimfires, but the ranger said it is possible.

We will be going back, this time with 22LRs and a bow I have. Frankly, I think the bow, a hunting compound, is the best weapon...

If you have private land, you can use any waepon after March 1st....

Hope this is helpful.

Old thread, I know. But has anyone found any good spots to get hogs on the Pascagoula WMA? I am going out there this weekend and I'm looking for advice. I was planning on scouting out this area here maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ll=30.64862,-88.630958&spn=0.019716,0.042014&sll=30.645666,-88.634434&sspn=0.019716,0.042014&t=h&z=15 since I can drive pretty close and then scout around.

I have been hunting over in Little Biloxi WMA these past few weekends and haven't seen any signs of hog, but I saw that y'all are looking in Pascagoula, so I figured that I'd give it a try. Thanks
