It appears that it became effective in August, 2005! Is this an amendment?

I don't understand the "primitive" part anymore. First they allowed inline modern muzzle loaders, then scopes on MLs, then single shot smokeless rifles. I gues they'll allow lever actions next. Then bolt actions. We do have a HUGE deer herd and I work a lot of auto accidents involving deer. Maybe the insurance companies are involved and they're trying to thin them out.

My Ruger 1B .300 Wby is very primitive - it has neither an electronic ignition (now available on at least one brand of muzzleloader) nor a rangefinding scope (I wear a rangefinder on a strap around my neck).

Although I now use an in-line (with open sights) for Colorado muzzleloader hunting and a compound bow (with peep sight and release aid) for Pennsylvania archery hunting, I would be in favor of having "Primitive" seasons limited to flintlocks and longbows (or recurves), so that those who truly apprecaite hunting with true "primitive" tools have a better chance of drawing the "primitive" season tags where they are limited and not requiring them to compete with those using the latest modern gadgets who should be hunting in the general rifle seasons.

It may have something to do with the deer population. High deer populations may require game management to open up more weapons to try to control that population.

I don't know the specifics for that state, but doubt that the decision was made without some game management goals in mind.

Primitive Arms: Rocks, spears, bows/arrows. To make it more primitive, you could only wear animal skins while hunting!

A Model One Ruger is not an allowable firearm for the Mississippi primitive weapon season. Neither is a 300 weatherby.

The caliber must be .38 or larger. Examples are 38-55, 44 Magnum, 405 Winchester, 444 Marlin, 45-70, and 500 S&W.

The rifle must be a single shot of kind and type manufactured prior to 1900, and replicas, reproductions or reintroductions of those type rifles, and must have an exposed hammer.

The H&R Handi Rifle in 45-70 is popular with Mississippi deer hunters.

Maybe they need to change the name from "Primitive Weapons" to "Whatever". As to managing the size of our herd, several years ago they upped the limit to one buck a day with a limit of 5 a year. and made every day of season a legal doe day. I don't know the limit on them. At that time I thought "Oh No! These folks that have been shooting does illegally all these years are going to wipe out the deer!" Well, I was wrong. A lot of those people won't shoot a doe now. And I guess I'm not much help. I was as crazy about deer hunting as anybody until a few years ago and I just began to lose interest. We see several deer most days on our drive way but I didn't hunt any last year. I'm a Deputy Sheriff here and work a lot of accidents involving deer and I see more dead deer on the roads and highways than dead rabbits. And we have a very long season. If you hunt with a bow, pw, and rifle or shotgun, you can hunt legally from the first part of October until the last of January. That's almost four months of hunting. Most people get tired of it before it's over.

I get pretty amused when one group of hunters gets lathered up over another group of hunters supposably having an unfair advantage, and thus going to wipe out the population of deer or whatever.

Deer season in Texas is now creeping up to where it's nearly half the year, depending on weapons (bow hunters get a month head start) and what particular deer management program you are on.

We're up to our ears in deer and like dbox said there's more and more killed on the road every day.

If the appropriate number of tags is issued for the area, there just isn't going to be a problem regardless of the type of hunting.

Too many or too few tags and there's going to be problems, regardless of the type of season or length.

Well I guess things were pretty primitive before 1900. " Back when a girl would still cook and still could".

The deer here are everywhere, especially in the built up areas. I have people ask me on a regular basis what they can do about the deer eating up their flowers and shrubs and such. And a lot of folks can't raise a garden because of them. I thought longer seasons and higher limits would control them but it hasn't. I'm afraid that there is going to be an epidemic disease move in some day and really thin them out. I really don't want to see that. But it seems that hunting isn't as popular as it once was.

It seems North Carolina just passed a Urban Bow season for this year. But right now no urban centers have signed up for it.

You can hunt deer with a hand thrown spear in Alabama during the bow season.
