Mississippi hunters won’t have to wait long in September to get started shooting. Seasons begin as soon as the calendar page is flipped.

Albeit on a Sunday, Sept. 1 is opening day for numerous migratory game birds, including the special Canada goose season, dove season, and the mostly overlooked seasons for gallinules and rails.

On Sept. 14, the teal season opens.

It may still be hot, almost too torrid to consider, but hunting season is rapidly approaching.
