Mississippi’s alligator season opens Aug. 30

Alligator season opens the end of August, and should produce some more outstanding — often both exciting and humorous — stories to share.

Mississippi’s public-waters alligator season opens at noon on Aug. 30 and will close at noon on Sept. 9, with 960 permits issued to hunters selected in two rounds of drawings in June.

Unfortunately, if you weren’t one of the lucky applicants accepted, or a friend of one who was, then you’re out of luck this year. But, please keep an eye on MS-Sportsman.com for some of the interesting stories that always come from the season.

We’ll do our best to get you the exciting, and often-humorous, tales from the season as they happen, and, of course, provide a roundup of the season in the October issue of Mississippi Sportsman.
