I was chosen for the Sicily Island Hills WMA lottery hunt for opening weekend. This will be my first time being chosen for the lottery. Can anyone offer up some advice or at least give me an idea of what to expect when I get there to hunt opening morning. Can I go as early as I want or do they assign people specific areas? Are there game wardens checking permits at certain areas at certain times before I can go in the woods. Any info and past experiences would be great.

Also, I'm not from that part of the state, has anyone been hearing any gobbling in the area? I will only have next Friday to do a cram scouting session :/

Thanks for you help!!

Wow! That ain't something you see everyday!! Yeah I can remember years ago going to Sherburne with my dad (either the 1st year they opened back up to turkey hunting or the second) and it was incredible. Seems like almost every hunter killed. Pearl River ain't too far from me either but I have never set foot on the place. Unfortunately the poor numbers over the last few years has forced me into paying out of state Mississippi hunting license fees.

Good luck!! Keep us posted on how it goes. I'm interested to hear if things are any better over there. You're right, it used to be full of turkeys but has been awful the past few years.

Curious if you got to do any hunting there this year and how it was? I've been wondering the same thing. I do know there are hunting clubs on 2 sides of it and private property on the back side.

Louisiana dept of wildlife and fisheries website says they will draw names in early march and send out notifications after. They usually don't give you much of a heads up. Doesn't leave us much time to scout!!
