Tonight was our monthly meeting. The topics discussed were:
Our finances are $1900 dollars over estimated allowances.
Rabbit hunters have been hunting on Cooper’s land. Their dogs are crossing unto their land. Nathan Self has made complaints to the board.
Work day on the 25th. We are cleaning up the back roads. Also repairing the hole in the back closet flooring. It has become a safety issue.
Nov 6 at 0900 at the Columbus Police station there is a veteran parade. Marching concludes with a 1100 ceremony at he courthouse. All veterans and widows are welcome to march.
Don’t shoot the gators in the ponds. It takes a special license and season to do so.
Turky hunters must abide by the following.
Step 1. Before You Go Hunting
Obtain a hunting license (unless exempt) and harvest record. Two types of harvest records are acceptable, a digital record or a printed form. Digital record keeping may be done through the Game Check feature found within the free MDWFP app. Register in the app and it will be your official harvest record. If you prefer a printed form, the form below will suffice.
Step 2. When You Harvest A Turkey
The reporting process must begin BEFORE you move the turkey from its harvest location. Using the Game Check feature, click the REPORT TURKEY button and complete and submit an entry. If there is no cellular coverage where you hunt, the app will automatically upload your harvest when coverage resumes. Using the printed form method, notch the corresponding month bubbles.
Step 3. After You Hunt
Using the Game Check feature, you have no additional requirements. Using the printed form, you must report the harvest through the MDWFP website or by calling 1-800-BE-SMART before 10 p.m. on the day of harvest.
There are Three Ways to Report:
1. MDWFP app
2. Online at mdwfp.com/gamecheck
3. Call 1-800-BE-SMART
Once you complete the harvest-reporting process, you will receive a confirmation number. This number must be documented on the harvest record.
Please do not broadcast corn or other grains during Turkey season. Turkey hunters travel all around the club looking for turkeys. If they get caught hunting over a field that has corn and were unaware it was there it could ruin their season!
It is illegal in Mississippi to hunt any wild animal or bird with the aid of bait. (https://www.mdwfp.com/law-enforcement/hunting-rules-regs/)
If you haven’t checked the pictures out for a while, head on on over to the tab labeled Photos. There have been a few up dates. Deer harvested on club land as well as Youth and Adult big buck winners.
October 1 marked the beginning of the 2018 / 2019 deer season. It started with Archery only until November 16. Remember it’s either sex during Archery season. Size and limits are the club size and limits. You can head over to the Library tab to download that and more.
Reminder that the shooting range is only open from 10:00 in the morning until 2:00 in the afternoon.
We had 227 acres of Lone Oak land sold without any notice. Please check the map and move your stand soon if you are in the highlighted areas.Contact a club officer for further questions.
Currently there is no hunting on the areas off of Highway 69. Due to right of way litigation between the current owner and adjacent neighbors these areas are no longer available to us at the present time. If and when these become available once again, an announcement will be made. Thank you for you for your understanding and cooperation.
