UPDATE: Senate panel nixes revisions to Miss. hunting time

By The Associated Press

JACKSON — A Senate committee has killed a bill that would’ve revised the dates for deer hunting seasons in Mississippi.

The Senate Wildlife and Fisheries Committee met Tuesday and chose not to vote on the bill. That killed it because Tuesday is the deadline for House and Senate committees to act on bills that had already passed the opposite chamber.

The bill proposed moving primitive weapons hunting to Nov. 1; adding more gun hunting, extending it through Jan. 31; and removing up to three weeks of exclusivity previously enjoyed by bow hunters.


The bill is House Bill 1282.
