Youth squirrel hunts set for Feb.
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is partnering with the Mississippi Wildlife Federation, Mississippi State University Extension Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to host seven youth squirrel hunts throughout Mississippi on Saturday, February 8, 2014. Hunt locations will be Canal Section WMA, Caney Creek WMA, Copiah County WMA, Twin Oaks WMA, Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge, Sardis Waterfowl WMA, and Pascagoula River WMA. These hunts were developed to introduce youth to small game hunting and conservation. The hunts are provided at no cost to participants.
During the one-day hunts, youth participants will be exposed to principles of hunting and firearms safety, squirrel hunting with dogs, and the daily life of squirrels and their habitats. Best of all, youth participants will have the opportunity to participate in a squirrel hunt!
To apply for a youth squirrel hunt, complete an application at http://mswildlife.org/events/2013-youth-squirrel-hunt by January 24, 2014. All applicants must be 10 – 15 years of age. Each hunt location is limited to 20 youth participants. Applicants will be notified by email regarding space availability for each location. A parent or legal adult guardian is required to accompany youth participants. Guns and ammunition for target shooting and hunting will be provided. Completion of a hunter education course by youth participants is not required.
