Quail season is open

Quail-PXMississippi’s statewide bobwhite quail hunting season opened Nov. 28 and will close March 1, 2014.
The daily bag limit is eight quail.
Several public lands around the state offer quail hunting opportunities, but hunters should be prepared to put in some time to find birds.
“Some of the best places to find quail during the hunting season are in or near thicker cover patches or edges associated with fields and upland forests with grassy ground cover,” said Dave Godwin of MDWFP.
