Hunters in the Mississippi Delta now have a new area to find game.
On Wednesday, Nov. 13, the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks dedicated a new wildlife management area named for Gov. Phil Bryant.
The new area covers parts of Warren and Issaquena counties, and along with the Mahana WMA, the state now offers 50,000 acres of public hunting ground on Mississippi’s western border, reports WLOX.
The Phil Bryant WMA will offer group hunts in primitive settings on four tracts, plus youth and handicapped hunting, waterfowl hunting and an area designated solely for archers.
Bryant was the featured speaker at the dedication.
“It’s for generations that don’t have land to hunt on, that weren’t big members of a fancy camp, but they can come here, and they can camp out with their father. They can join with their brothers and enjoy the great outdoors,” Bryant told WLOX.
