Does anyone hunt around the Meadville area of Miss. May be getting land around there and was wondering what to expect the deer herd to be like.

Meadville/Bude has a lot of Homochitto National forest around there. If your place is not to close to forest land it will be prime, BUT if it IS close to the forest get ready to see some dogs on your place when you are hunting.

Most if not all of the private land is dog hunting and all of the public land is dog hunting. I am not much of a dog hunter as they are really difficult to hit on the run with a bow. I do have the woods almost to myself early in the season. There are few bow hunters in our club. Over half of the folks in our club are from Louisiana. Really good and friendly folks in the area. I have been in a lease in that area since 2004. Pretty good amount of deer but they are pressured.

Not quite the answer i was looking for. The land has about 2200 feet bordering the homochitto. Guess I will have to put up with the hounds. What is the deer herd like in regards to abundance of deer and average buck size. This will be a little place tucked away for me and the family to hunt.(wife and baby on the way)

Used to hunt around meadville a few years ago and it was pretty nice. During the rut bucks were everywhere, we only hunted there one year and shot some real nice ones and missed some wallhangers as well. Outside of the rut it was hit-or-miss, kinda like everywhere else on earth. Good deer herd with some very fat deer.

Well i guess you have to give and take.I,ve been hunting there since 1996 and have seen alot of deer and killed my share.The dogs are the only downfall i can see.The country is beautiful and i just bought 57 acres in Roxie and built and nice cabin on it.Just remember there not making any more land so if you afford it do it.
