To learn how landowners can have more turkeys on their land, the link between turkey management and timber management and the latest research on turkey predation, Mississippi Sportsman talked with Dave Godwin, wild turkey program coordinator for the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP).
January duck hunting in the Magnolia State is quite a bit different than hunting early-season birds in December. Birds that have been pounded from Canada to the Gulf are quite wary, and hunting them at the tail-end of our duck season can be frustrating to say the least.
I am slap worn out from deer hunting this season. Nothing has gone right. The food plots were half-you-know-what with no rain early, then the first frost whacked them back. They never recovered. The landowner let firewood cutters come in to saw logs every weekend. I just love the sound of a chainsaw a hundred yards from my best tree stand. Then the annual December heat wave hit to shut down the rut. Im ready to toss in the towel.
