Mississippi Eastern Wild Turkey Hunts

Mississippi Eastern Wild Turkey Hunts

Intro

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 regularly, managing it to increase the wildlife carrying capacity. 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 we believe you will like what you see.

Our hunters arrive AFTER lunchtime. Check-in will not be taken before 1 PM.  We have a safety talk and sign release of liability papers. We discuss any health problems or special needs which could affect your hunt. We assign a room. Then we go hunting, by approximately 2 PM. 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.

In the mornings, hunters 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 around noon,  then continue hunting later in the day, until 30 minutes past sunset (dark-thirty). The success rate on toms is greater than 50%.

Even though we can start hunting March 14, the longbeards really don't start gobbling until later. Of course, this can change with the weather. Be sure to bring your rubber boots: it tends to get damp here in the spring.  We do our best to be close to God, but He is in charge of the weather.  We hunt rain or shine, hot or cold, flooding or dusty. Bring good boots and rain gear. Mosquito repellent is also a good idea.  We do our best to adjust for rough weather, which can have a huge impact on wildlife movement.  We do have some sheltered stands for emergencies. 

We will not take more than 5 hunters at a time. We spread out to prevent hunting over each other. Also, we don't book hunts back-to-back to avoid putting too much pressure on the birds.
