By    |   Friday, 29 May 2015 11:36 AM

Open deer season is an intensely awaited date every year in Mississippi just as it is in many states across the U.S., but hunting in Mississippi in the fall means another opportunity to hunt turkey and another bird, Canada geese.

Read on about three of the animals you can hunt in Mississippi during the fall:

1. Deer
Deer season kicks off with archery permissions beginning in early October and lasting until late November, which overlaps with the youth gun and early primitive weapons hunt seasons.

Late fall offers hunters the opportunity to hunt deer with dogs starting in late November until early December, while other open seasons for deer hunting last through the start of winter in Mississippi.

Each zone has their own regulations, and all hunters must keep in mind that a legal buck is defined differently depending on which zone they are in. For example, the Delta Zone defines a legal buck as having either a minimum inside spread of 12 inches or a main 15-inch or longer main beam, while the Hill Zone provides the definition of a legal buck having a 13-inch main beam or a minimum inside spread of 10 inches.

2. Turkey

Mississippi hunters have two opportunities every year to bag their two permissible turkeys during the fall season, while the spring season allows for three gobblers to be snagged. The fall season kicks off in mid-October and lasts for about one month, and hunters must check which counties in each zone have open areas for turkey hunting.

Lastly, the two-turkey limit applies to turkeys of either sex and hunting can take place “on private lands where the landowner/leaseholder completes a fall turkey hunting application and provides a copy of the property deed or lease agreement at the MDWFP Regional Office or the Jackson Office” according to eRegulations.

3. Canada Geese
Two chances in the fall exist for hunters looking for Canada Geese: one short season in the beginning of September, and a longer open season that lasts from mid-November until late January.

The daily bag limit during the former is five, with a possession limit of 15, while the daily bag limit for the latter is three geese with a nine-possession limit. Hunters should also note that Roebuck Lake, located in Leflore County, does not permit Canada goose hunting.
