Mississippi’s 2020-21 hunting forecast – Northeast Region


“We’re looking for another good season in this region,” said biologist Blount. “If you’re looking for quality bucks, then you might want to try either Canal Section on the Tenn-Tom or Divide Section in Tishomingo County, as they always have some good bucks there.

“If you just want to see a deer or harvest a deer, then Chickasaw may be the WMA for you. We’re seeing a lot of deer there and having great reports, and there’s a lot of new cover after a pine beetle outbreak a few years ago. Last year, this WMA had the best man-day harvest rate it’s had in the past decade.”


Tuscumbia is the premier waterfowl destination in this region, with nine impoundments for ducks. Unit 2 is a draw hunt only, but there is also an opportunity for non-draw hunts in Unit 1.

“Tuscumbia has an assortment of ducks, but Canal Section also has some wood ducks and mallard to hunt,” Blount said.”

Small game

If you’re looking for squirrel hunting, then practically all of the WMAs in this area have good squirrel hunting, including Canal Section, Divide Section and Chickasaw.

Hell Creek has good rabbit hunting, and it’s by an early draw as well.
