Canemount WMA is composed of approximately 3,500 acres located in the Loess Bluffs of Claiborne County near the Mississippi River. These hills have very deep and fertile top soil with a very high component of cherrybark oak in the timber stands. The Canemount property has a long history of trophy deer management. In fact, the previous owner worked with MDWFP biologists through the Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) since 1991 to facilitate quality deer management. Hunting Canemount WMA will be a totally unique hunting experience compared to other WMAs. Hunters looking for a truly special hunting opportunity with a high chance of seeing and harvesting game should look no further than Canemount WMA.
