Deer Hunting Opportunities for Youth and Handicapped Hunters on Trim Cane WMA
JACKSON - Deer season is only a couple months away. Hunters
are beginning to get deer hunting fever as they plan their hunts.
Trim Cane Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is primarily managed
for waterfowl hunting; however there are some unique deer hunting
opportunities for youth and handicapped hunters. The WMA is an
891-acre tract located about four miles north of Starkville in
Oktibbeha County. Outside of the waterfowl impoundments,
habitat on Trim Cane is managed primarily in an early successional
stage which provides excellent deer habitat.
Due to the small size of the WMA, deer hunting is restricted
to youth hunters and wheelchair bound hunters. There are four
wheelchair-accessible shooting houses placed on openings across the
WMA. Hunting is limited to Saturday afternoons in December
and January. There will be two youth hunters and two handicap
hunters drawn per day. Hunters are selected by a random
The bag limit is the same as statewide bag limits. Legal
bucks are those with an inside spread of at least 10 inches or one
main beam length of at least 13 inches. However, for hunters
less than 16 years of age, any antlered buck is a legal buck.
You may apply online at www.mdwfp.com from August 1 - 31, 2012
for these hunts.
