I can suggest some public spots but it depends on if you guys wanna fool with a bunch of hogs or just go after deer.  If you want hogs delta national forest is full of em and so is panther swamp and hillside refuge. For bigger deer the homochitto would be an option as well.
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?
Post by: matt steed on August 24, 2017, 07:32:00 PM
Don't have Bruckers number anymore. He started his own business and he and his wife had a couple kids. He's been busy for the last couple years.

Panther Swamp in Mississippi is suppose to be a good bowhunting location. We hunted the Yockanookany Management area last time we had a hunt. One of the guys killed a doe. Choctaw Wildlife Managment Area is a huge public land area. They have good camping areas also.

Feel free to give me a call. 662-582-6450

Ole Possum say to look into Beinville national forrest lots of Hogs and some say better hunting then the WMA's.

Anybody know anything about it?

It is centrally located in the state for one, but I don't personally know anymore about it.

I have hunted up in the Morgans Brake Hillside area and know there deer and hogs there.
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?

Noxubee Refuge gets very little pressure during archery season and has a great picnic/grilling spot on the lake...
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?
Post by: Possum Head on August 24, 2017, 09:29:00 PM
I reckon I'll chime in. Today I was thinking central Ms as a portion of members live up north. That's when Tallahalla came to mind. Primitive camping is free and it;s got hog and deer options.
National forest camping varies from place to place so once we all decide on a general area extra effort can be made to obtain camp rules. Noxubee and Choctaw have both been mentioned and are back to back. I like Hillside as well. Panther has ample game but due to it's popularity is grossly over crowded and the squirrel hunters are like mosquitoes. Ok Daniel here's how it's broke down for non-residents 3 day all game archery 129.29, Deer permit 7.29, WMA permit 32.29.

The pressure has diminished greatly since the dog running has been curbed. A lot of hunting clubs see more pressure than HNF these days.
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?
Post by: mississippidude on August 31, 2017, 11:16:00 PM
I've certainly seen some nice deer come out of HNF. There are some great places to camp as well.
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?
Post by: joebuck on September 01, 2017, 10:08:00 AM
Heres some things to thing about planning the camp/hunt we discussed last time.

1. Our out of state members showed a TON of interest to come camp and hunt last time!.  Public affordable hog hunting is a huge draw for them.

2. MDWFP Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) Properties: Wild hogs may be taken incidental to hunting activities during any open hunting season with weapons and ammunition legal for that hunting season.

3. If we hunt a WMA , it has to be during deer or turkey season so we can legally hunt hogs.

4. With all that said......we need to have our campout/hunt the last week of deer season IMO on a WMA with hogs.

5. Here's my brainstorm.  I am going to get "bow and arrows" legally written up to hunt in  Squirrel Season.  That way we can legally hunt hogs on a WMA in May and through Feb28TH !... This way we can hog hunt on WMA in FEB for hogs legally with bows and arrows
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?

In the past I would google MTB,but could never find the website?

Joey, #4 above sounds like a particularly good idea!
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?
Post by: South MS Bowhunter on September 01, 2017, 01:05:00 PM
Joey,

I love your thinking on the rule adjustment, and I and all my local trad friends would agree.

Let me know what I and they can do to make this happen.

It is frustrating to be told by local authorities that we have a hog problem and then tie our hands to do anything about it.

I and my friends have even discussed if they would charge a fee to hunt hogs and open year round we would pay.

St. Catherine and Sandy creek are 2 separate WMAs within a few miles of each other. Both are rife with pigs and deer.
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?

I believe St. Catherine is primitive only. Of course, in MS, primitive is not very primitive. I believe Sandy Creek does allow some modern rifle hunting. But not real sure to be honest. I don't keep up with rifle regs. I know the backside of Sandy creek WMA is directly across the Homochitto river from our property and it is utterly infested with pigs. St Catherine is known for being fabulous public ground.
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?
Post by: matt steed on September 02, 2017, 12:34:00 AM
I talk to Mr. Warren Womack today. He said Sandy Creek would be the best in his opinion. He has had good luck there but he also said the deer population is definitely less than it use to be.

You can hunt those times with a bow now on a WMA The problem we face is limiting us to the use of small game points (no broadheads). That's why turkey season works for pigs because broadheads are acceptible. Certainly have room for change!
Title: Re: Mississippi Traditional Bowhunters Roll call again?
Post by: joebuck on September 03, 2017, 09:15:00 AM
Possum.   Thinking out loud.   Does it say anywhere in State Regs. you can not hunt squirrels with broad heads".   Or is this a Fed WMA reg? I know in FED  regs it specifically states you can't hunt Small game with broadheads.  So our best bet is to hunt a State WMA I think

Swine ... can you touch base with St Catherine manager and find out if we can hunt squirrels with BH.  I know it's Fed but he may tell you they would not enforce !  If so. I am all for a mid feb  squirrel hunt ( but really hog hunt) at a place loaded with hogs.    where could we camp?

Arrow point rules for Small game at St. Catherine....

"Small game may also be hunted with .22 magnum, .17 and .22 caliber rim re ri es, and archery equipment using arrows with points other than broad-heads"

Will try and call their office and see if enforced as Joey Suggested.

I spoke with my local conservation officer and he told me that it would be illegal to hunt hogs with a bow during a small game only season. He's a buddy of mine so he also let me know that I'd get some really weird looks if I was out and about trying to shoot squirrels with a bow... Not that it would be against the rules, just that it would be odd. I told him that I was a Yankee toting a longbow so I was used to being looked at a little strangely in the Mississippi woods.

I made a call in to St. Catherine, spoke with Julie. I explained what we as a group are wanting to do and the mission of the MS Trad club etc...

Explained our intent to hunt "hogs" during small game season in February.

Explained that we wanted to do what's right legally and ethically, but the state regulations on "no broad heads" places a restriction on us and the states desire to exterminate hogs.

I ask if we could possibly get an exemption or some latitude to use broad heads.

She is consulting others to see if they will. Will contact me later

Scout,

I chose to speak with "Julie" after reviewing their personnel directory, as I thought I'd have a better chance to use my keen wit and charm on the feminine persuasion   :D

It was working great until she wanted to consult with her co-worker "Nathan" .

It turns out "Nathan" was as stubborn as you and the rest of the F.R.O.G team   :rolleyes:

Just a word of advice...the more you all talk about a hunting area ONLINE, the more people can easily find the places you are wanting to keep "secret".

Mike, I couldn't agree more. Back that talk up with some good pictures and you'll surely see it over run. There are a few places in Ms. that are flocked with resident and non resident hunters because of over publicizing.

If it were me, I would petition the TG Administration (Terry/Rob) to set up a Tab in the Traditional Club section for all who are interested in this hunt.  This way, your discussions would be private and only for club members, and 2nd, I would ask TG Admin to either move this thread to the new Tab, or remove it completely, to get this info gone.

Just my .01, seeing as .02 would cost me to much.

I hadn't been hunting since opening day, between busy and warm weather, but I think I'll get to go Monday and Tuesday when the weather turns.

Me either. To hot for me. Scouted opening morning. Didn't hardly see a track. Said I'd go back when we get some rain and cooler temps. We've got a litttle rain but not much. Supposed to be 90 tomorrow. May go next weekend. Will have to see

8upbowhunter, I am sorry you can't log onto the website. I don't know anything about the site or I would help you.

Maybe Joebuck will chime in shortly. Maybe send him a PM.
If you don't have any luck with the website or getting in touch with anybody, I will send you $10.00

Thank you. I am going to try and contact Joebuck also.

I'm not. Way South in Jackson county with very low deer density as well.  I just finished up my journal notes for the year.

I hunted the whole season to my detriment on a piece of private land I have permission to hunt.

I either hunted from a tree stand, natural ground blind, or a very few times (less than half dozen) with my rifle in a shooting house or tri- pod a 144 hours this year.

Out of that 144 hours i seen 8 deer, thats right 8 deer!  I had one shot opportunity with my bow and short drew and missed low.  had one shot opportunity with my rifle and passed on it (a young spike).

I need to hunt up north more and on the public land within a few mile of home.  I see more deer there.

I hear ya. I talked to a guy at mdwfp yesterday. Said they have tested a bunch of deer in the area and all have been negative and no more found. Looks like things will be back to normal before long.
