Just FYI I was at a deer management seminar Saturday in Hattiesburg, and the MDWFP folks gave out some info on what's happening with deer seasons this fall/winter. I don't have complete season info, but I do know what's happening with the bowhunting and the proposed early primitive season...

Statewide bowhunting begins October 1st for legal bucks (depends on your zone) and does. Statewide first primitive season begins Nov 8th and final day is Nov 19th, does only, no bucks. Regular rifle season starts Nov 20th. I think that’s with dogs, but I’m not sure. Bowhunting will be legal from October 1st up through the end of the final gun season, whenever that is for your zone.

The “Outdoor Digest” that you usually get at Walmart in August will be delayed until sometime in September, so you’ll probably want to use the MDWFP web site to double check these dates. http://home.mdwfp.com (They are delaying the booklet this time so they can include waterfowl dates, which are not finalized until late August.)

Also be aware there is a tiny chance the first primitive season will not be approved. They said that it’s just a formality, but then again it is government, so there’s always a chance it will get screwed up. They said they will post the seasons on their web site as soon as everything is finalized in the next week or so.

Steve, you're correct the first gun season is WITH DOGS.... So as far as I'm concerned, the first PW season is a waste if we can't shoot a buck before the dog idiots get out and ruin it for 5 weeks! :bull: :pullhair:

Yeah I hear ya. The MDWFP guy said the purpose of this season is so people who need to take does for their management plan can do so. If that house bill had become law, I was gonna sell my bow and quit bowhunting because that first primitive season would have made up for it. Since they're not doing that -- well I guess I'll have to bowhunt again this October. What the heck - mosquitos gotta eat too...

yall need to come to Tallahatchie County and see what they think of the deer seasons..... I think they start bow season around april and swith to rifles shot off four wheelers but only during daylight hours in May, then around July you can shoot them out of the truck, but only at night and this goes on until bow season opens back up in april. Oh and you run dogs all year long.
