I moved to Mississippi 15 years ago for my hunting. I manage a couple of 700 acre tracts and a 1000 acre tract with summer and winter food plots and minerals. I've got a few open memberships with limited members on each tract to keep hunting pressure down also for safety. Members are allowed their private area and open club stands on a tag system. Dues pay for hunting lease and food plots. We are a non-profit club. Pine forest tops, hardwood bottoms, freshwater creek and branches. Average 6 and 8 pointers scoring 110 to 140. Deer, turkey, squirrel, rabbit. Immediate family welcome. If you want more info contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org leave phone and I'll get back to you. Ace
Missississippi may well be the true outdoor sportsman's capitol. We have a huge whitetail population, hogs, ducks, squirrel, rabbit, and dove. Both freshwater and saltwater fishing are excellent. Our deer season runs from Sep 30th through February 15th. We have a multitude of Federal and State Forests and Wildlife Management Areas along with ample private and commercial land that is leased by hundreds of thousands of hunters each year for the purpose of hunting. Mississippians fervor for hunting is nearly rabid. We eat, drink, and breathe hunting through the season. While I'm not very well travelled, I could live where ever I choose, but cannot imagine leaving my Mississippi hunting season behind. Hope this helps...
There can be too much of a good thing with antler rattling.
I like to hit the horns together for a good 30- to 40-second rattling sequence and then hang them up and resist the urge to hit them again.
This works to the hunter's advantage, because if a buck has heard it, he may have been 300 or 400 yards away and he comes in and he's not exactly sure where it came from.
When finally is time to rattle again throw a slight change-up into the routine.
The second time, don't rattle as loud...
