Am I Missing Something

Postby terry08 » Sun Oct 13, 2013 2:07 pm

Is it still bow season? Evidently we don't have that many bow hunters. Our Louisiana, brothers are at it every day, or so it seems. Maybe when the weather gets right, we will start to see more posts. Wish I had a cross bow, I would be out there right now.

I'm new to the game. I just bought a bow, climber, camo, etc...just dont know where to go hunt. i'm in hattiesburg. My wife's fam has got a bunch of land in Ethel where we hunt rifle season. it's just a 3 hour drive or i'd be there every morning/night. Any recommendations around hattiesburg?

Welcome to the forum! Maybe you should try a wma. I have not hunted any wma in your area , but you could take a look and see what you find.
Looks like Marion wma or wolf river wma may be near you.
May have to find an area that is away from the crowded areas.
Good luck!

Maybe, just depends on what day. Don't you have to get a permit to hunt the wma's though? I'll talk to my buddy that has hunted it and see if I can get some info.

Be sure and check Will 's, gear before leaving home. In fact I would make a list, and have him show you each item on the list as you check it off. Then, follow him to the truck and check off each bag as he loads them in the vehicle. You should be good to go. :grin:

I went through that last season, but enjoyed reading every post. Feeling a little better about it this year. Just bush hogging, the fire lanes and gas line, then spending an evening in the blind. Has gotten me back in the mood. Haven't taken one in two years now. After checking the price of Rlbeye steak, the other day, 14.99 a pound, it's time to fill the freezer.

Make it while you can. And then sit back and enjoy it later. The deer population is growing by the day. :grin:
