The special primitive weapons season is for antlerless deer only on private lands and open public lands from Monday, November 10, through Friday, November 21. This special season is provided to allow hunters on prop- erties with higher deer densities, additional and earlier opportunities to meet antlerless harvest objectives prior to the rut. Only archery equipment and primitive firearms may be tsed during this season. "Primitive firearms," for the purpose of hunting deer, are defined as single or double bar- reled muzzle- loading rifles of at least .38 caliber; OR single shot, breech load- ing, metallic cartridge rifles (.35 cali- :ber or larger) and replicas, reproductions, or reintro- ductions of those type ri- fles with an exposed ham- mer; OR single or double barreled muzzle-loading shotguns, with single ball or slug. All muzzle- loading primitive firearms must use black powder or a black powder substi- tute with percussion caps, #209 shotgun primers or flintlock igni- tion. "Most prop- erties that Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks' (MDWFP) bi- ologists visit are often at, or' over, carrying capacity," said Lann Wilf, MDWFP Deer Program Leader. "Most private lands in the Hill and Delta Deer Man- agement Zones have a bio- logical need to participate in this hunt. Hunters and managers should try to meet antlerless deer har- vest objectives early to re- duce antlerless deer popu- lations." The special primi- tive weapons season will not be occurring in the Southeast Deer Manage- ment Zone due to lower deer numbers. Addition- ally, this season will not be occurring on Wildlife Management Areas due to high hunter numbers and differing manage- ment objectives on those p0perties. .....
