Dove Hunting Opportunity Available on Copiah County WMA
JACKSON - Copiah County Wildlife Management Area (WMA) will once again offer dove hunting opportunities this year.  WMA personnel have professionally prepared two dove fields on the area.  Dove hunting at Copiah County WMA is allowed on Wednesdays and Saturdays from noon until sunset during the first North Zone dove season, September 1 - 23. 
Visitors to Copiah County WMA should be aware of special regulations that apply to all WMAs.  All visitors to WMAs, except those exempt from purchasing an annual hunting or fishing license, must purchase and carry an annual statewide WMA User Permit.  WMA user permits may be purchased wherever hunting and fishing licenses are sold.  Fees collected from the purchase of WMA User Permits help defray the costs of management activities on WMAs.  Additionally, visitors must complete a daily visitor use permit card before entering the WMA.  These permit cards are available at the permit station located at the WMA headquarters.
