Attention Mississippians

Senate Bill 2048 which will allow any Mississippians (without regard to age or disability) to hunt in all archery seasons was passed by the Senate Wildlife Committee Monday and will be up for a vote in the Senate Very-Very Soon.

Please contact your Mississippi State Senator Thursday or as soon as possible and politely request that that they vote for SB 2048.

Just in from Mississippi.......


The full Senate voted to pass full inclusion bill about 4:00 this afternoon. The MBA agreed in writing to offer no more opposition to full inclusion of crossbows for all seasons. The bill still has to go to the House for concurrence but no opposition is anticipated. When passed by the house and signed by the governoer conventional bows and crossbows will now be allowed for everybody in Mississippi to hunt deer, turkey, and small game hunting in the respective seasons from October 1 through January 31 of each year.

Just got this from Mississippi - " Just a short note to advise you that our full inclusion crossbow bill cleared the final hurdle this morning. The bill passed the full Senate with no "nay" votes. SB 2048 is now on its way to the Governor's desk for his signature. Once signed, it will become effective July 01, 2013, and everyone regardless of age will be able to hunt deer, turkey, and small game with a crossbow. We are sincerely grateful for your support over the years!"
