It has been said that there are more Whitetail Deer in Mississippi than there are people. Taking a long drive from the delta to the coast, and judging by the amount of agricultural fields, forests, water sources available across the state, and the very rural development of much of the state, this is very probable. Add to that the huge number of dedicated hunters that, for decades, have practiced quality game management, there are truly some impressive deer herds located in Mississippi.
To support this line of thought, consider the major hunting businesses that have had their start in Mississippi. Primos Game Calls and Mossy Oak Camo, Pitman’s Game Calls, Bill Atkins Taxidermy and a host of famous outdoor hosts for popular hunting television shows – Not to mention this very Website – World Class Outdoors!
From the coastal pine forests, through the central part of the state, up to the rich and fertile delta regions, Whitetail Deer Hunting is as popular today as ever before. But the problem for avid hunters is having access to quality hunting land. To really get the most out of your valuable time spent deer hunting, it is important to have the benefit of hunting on property that has the benefit of the quality game management, pre-set stands, active food plots and trail camera monitoring. This kind of land is quite costly to maintain, so taking advantage of a professional Mississippi Hunting Guide or Outfitter is a wise choice for many hunters.
The majority of Mississippi Deer Hunts provided by professional guides will be held on private land and hunting guests will also have the benefit of staying at the hunting lodge with home-cooked meals, entertaining conversation and warm hospitality during their stay. As a matter of fact, many outfitters build a solid business on repeat deer hunters returning and bringing their family and friends.
The Mississippi deer outfitters, hunting guides and lodges featured on World Class Outdoors each have a similar goal: To prove each hunter a challenging, exciting and rewarding hunting experience. They provide hunts for every kind of weapon, to suit the preferences of their hunters. Archery (bow hunting) season usually begins when the weather is still warm in early October and runs to Rifle season which is typically mid-November. Specific seasons change, depending on the game management determined by the game biologist to develop healthier herds. And of course by the rut.
In the northern regions of the state, the deer rut usually begins the latter part of November, while in the south the peak is not hit until the end of December. This is another benefit of hiring a pro Mississippi hunting guide – they will know the exact dates to improve your chances of taking a nice trophy buck during the peak of the rut! The rut is truly the most exciting time to hunt whitetail, because they respond better to calls, horn rattles and they are more active in the day because they are chasing hot does!
Mississippi Deer Hunting Guides and Outfitters will have trail cam pictures from prime locations, showing movement and patterns, enabling you a great opportunity at a nice trophy buck!
