Did anyone else apply for Mississippi WMA turkey hunts?


Today I found out I was drawn for days 3 and 4 of the season.

Southwest Mississippi

In your area, Sandy Creek.

ETA: It will still be "early" but I'm glad I'll get a shot in there before it gets over run.

Yeah we've hunted the public land around there for a long time. It was really good about 10-12 years ago, then went through several down years. But most reports are there were several good hatches in a row within the last few years.

Yeah I've hunted it since I was a kid, but I can't remember the last time I hunted there when there wasn't a truck parked every 300 yards.

Pdubya, are the dogwoods blooming yet?

Congrats, the season is drawing close. I just finished booking my trip for April. Gonna do a full week and hunt both Kansas and Nebraska.

I'm going to Missouri the second week of their season and we're thinking about adding a few extra days to catch either Kansas or Nebraska. They both seem to have a lot of public access, which would you recommend?

I've not hunted Kansas or Nebraska before. I do know that the SE section of Nebaska is absolutely covered up in turkeys and Kansas has a pile of them too. A lot of guys like hunting Indian land in Nebraska and I've had a few tell me that old fashioned knocking at the farmers door works in that area of the country too.
