Though the Wildcats lost, Alligator Hunting Season Yields Record Harvest The 2015 Mississippi pub- lic water alligator hunting season closed on September 7; the private lands hunting season remains open until 6 a.m. on September 21. To increase participation among permitted hunters this year, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MD- WFP) changed the sale of public water alligator hunt- ing permits to a first come, first served process. In 2013 and 2014, only 75 percent of eligible permit holders participated, with a harvest of 671 and 682 alligators, respectively. Preliminary harvest reports and surveys submitted for 2015 indicate a record harvest of over 960 alligators and over 90 per- cent participation among permitted hunters. The online sale of public water permits was conduct- ed on July 14 with a high volume of customers com- peting for one of the 920 available permits. When the permit sale goal was met, number of electronic bank transactions were still in process. This resulted in extra permits sold. Af- ter careful evaluation, the MDWFP determined that the extra permits would not negatively impact Missis- sippi's alligator population and decided to honor all permits that were sold. MDWFP attributes this year's record harvest to in- creased hunter experience and their knowledge of good hunting areas. In addition, weather conditions were exceptionally conducive to hunting, and the moon phase became more favor- able in the final days of the season.
