Been a long long time. We mostly duck hunted over there but I will say that there are some absolute monsters when you get close to the river that just aren't talked about a lot.

As a Mississippi native I used to hunt them religiously, but I haven't set foot on one in well over 10 years. There were always some great deer seen and a few taken but you certainly had to work for them and with a lot of hunter activity pushing deer, luck played a big part. Based on what I have heard/not heard in recent times, the quality of the hunting has possibly gone down somewhat, but that's just a guess.

Looks most of the wma's the season closes mid November. I thought the rut was Jan in the delta that's where I want to go. I see there is wildlife refuges that are open till Jan and feb. Most of there wma have horn restriction of min 15 spread or 18 main beam. One even is 16/20. Makes some nice bucks
