In Mississippi, we can hunt turkeys from mid-March to the end of April. State guidelines only allow longbeards to be harvested during turkey seasons. The beard must be at least 6 inches long. No jakes or hens may be harvested in Mississippi. No rifles may be used. You may use a bow or shotgun.
We scout heavily for turkeys before and during the season, plus years of hunting here gives us the knowledge of where the turkeys hang out. We cut timber every other year, so our habitat changes. Turkeys like to be able to see, so they avoid thick cover. Turkeys like to roost in big timber and fly down in open areas. Therefore, when we cut our timber, we keep all wildlife in mind. We want you to have a successful hunt and at the same time we are managing our land for future hunters. We believe you will like what you see.
Our hunters arrive at 11:00 pm. We have a safety talk and sign release of liability papers. We discuss any health problems which could affect your hunt and special needs. We assign a room. Then we go hunting. We have had hunters kill a gobbler within minutes of starting to hunt. Most of the time, the turkey hunters try to roost a turkey and learn the land. Since everyone has a cell phone now with GPS and mapping, most hunters don't need a guide. While you are hunting, we are scouting. You can text me for any suggestions on possible turkey movements.
We will not take more than 5 hunters at a time. We spread out to prevent overhunting each other. Also, we don't book hunts back to back to avoid putting too much pressure on the birds.
We are on-site before the turkeys come off the roost. Most hunters hunt till 10:00 or 11:00 in the morning (that is, if you don't kill a tom earlier). We come in for lunch, then continue hunting later in the day. Even though we can start hunting March 15, the longbeards really don't start heavy gobbling until a week later. Of course this can change with the weather. The success rate on toms is 75%. Be sure to bring your rubber boots: it tends to get damp here in the spring.
