Beware of Misprint in Mississippi Outdoor Digest Concerning Bag Limits and Antler Beam Length

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks would like all sportsmen and women to be aware of a misprint concerning White-tailed Deer bag limits and legal buck main beam length in select hard copies of the 2017-2018 edition of the Mississippi Outdoor Digest.  


On page 16 of the Mississippi Outdoor Digest under the section titled “Bag Limits,” the text should read:


“The bag limit on Delta, Northeast, East Central, and Southwest zones antlerless deer is three (3) per annual season. The bag limit on Southeast Zone antlerless deer is one (1) per day, two (2) per annual season.”


Also on page 16, the table titled, “LEGAL BUCKS” should show 13” for the Southwest Zone under the “MAIN BEAM” column.


These corrections to the Mississippi Outdoor Digest reflect official 2017-2018 Mississippi hunting season regulations. You can download a correct digital version of the 2017-2018 edition of the Mississippi Outdoor Digest at
