    Default Great MS Hunting Season

    I've been absent due to me forgetting my password and having a few technical issues. This is kind of a recap of my MS hunting season. Ended up with 3 bucks, 2 doe, 13 hogs, a few rabbits and a lot of squirrels but most importantly my oldest got his first deer.

    My oldest with his first deer (spike).

    I passed this buck twice throughout the season. However he was wounded enough he wouldn't have made it until the next season. I killed him chasing does even though his tongue was completely severed and could barely operate his jaw.

    Usually all of my bucks come off public land but due to time constraints and a few good bucks showing up on my place I tagged out at home. First time that's ever happened. I won't argue if that happens again.

    Now its on to some fishing with the kiddos.

    Great year. Your son should be as proud as his dad. You look to have a great property for hunting and raising kids right!

    Do you eat the hogs?? We have some NASTY diseases they carry here and definitely a no go.

    Congrats on a good season. Some very nice bucks and a lot of bacon. Especially good on your oldest for getting his first deer!

    That’s awesome. We were a little slow this year. Is your place in the hills of Warren County? No new CWD cases after the two, correct?

    You’re doing a great job as a dad! Keep up the good work. And, congratulations to your son on his first deer. I’ve 3 grandsons that hunt in MS, I think 2 of the 3 had their first deer by age 6. It’s great to see kids raised in a hunting family, very likely will become great young men! memtb

    Yeah I'm over around Flowers one the East side of the county. As far as I know that was the only two down here. Pontotoc and Marshall county had several in North MS.

    I do for the Natchez hunts but have never thought about the Tensas ones. Thanks for the heads up.

    great season. congrats. but what’s with trophy photos in the bucket? why not just take the more natural photos with machinery?

    Haha. I took some natural ones but that is a two part answer. One: I usually kill all bucks on public ground so I took pictures in the bucket to mess with a few friends and my dad about how easy the drag job was. Two: I was short on time and when you're by yourself the pics don't always turn out as good when you are trying to take a picture of yourself with the deer.

    Not sure if there are any out of state restrictions for the youth hunt, but there are some excellent opportunities for the Tensas youth hunt. They just have to be 8-15 years old and present at the Hunting and Fishing Day on the refuge in Sept to register.
