Charles Ray Nix and Malmaison offer the best bets in this region to harvest a quality buck due to regulations and habitat management,” said regional biologist Brad Holder. “Charles Ray Nix is draw-hunt only, and Malmaison is a first-come, first-serve hunt.”
“Last year, there were a couple of bucks harvested in the 120 to 125 B&C range on C.R. Nix, and a couple 8- and 10-pointers that scored in the 130 to 140 class on Malmaison.”
“Waterfowl hunting is pretty big on Malmaison. We’ve got greentree reservoirs that get flooded as well as the McIntyre Scatters and sloughs along the Yalobusha River,” Holder said. “Normally, we’ll see a lot of greenheads, teal, gadwall, wood ducks and a few ring necks, widgeon and scaup.
“Charles Ray Nix has a pretty strong population of rabbits, and it’s always pretty good rabbit-hunting here,” Holder said.
“Upper Sardis is a good area to hunt squirrels. The upper end of the WMA along the Tallahatchie River has a greater composition of hardwoods and plenty of grey squirrels and a few fox squirrels.”
