VICKSBURG, Miss. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District’s Grenada Lake Field Office announced today that the lake will host archery-specific hunting opportunities during the 2019-2020 hunting season.
The Grenada Lake Field Office has designated two areas for these opportunities:
Area 1: The Quail Management Area, located at the northern end of the Grenada Dam, will be open to archery hunting Jan. 1, 2020, through the end of deer hunting season.
Area 2: The USACE property located on the southern side of Old Highway 8 between 333 Restaurant and Wolf Creek Hollow will be open during the entire 2020 deer hunting season.
Hunters will have the option of using crossbows and compound bows, as well as traditional archery equipment.
Those patrons interested in archery hunting in these locations during the deer hunting season should register with the Grenada Lake Visitor Center starting in September.
Registrants will receive a packet containing all the rules and regulations, as well as detailed maps of each designated area. The objective of these archery hunting opportunities is to reduce the doe population in order to minimize habitat degradation and to gather data pertaining to deer herd.
For more information on these archery hunting opportunities, contact the Grenada Lake Visitor Center at (662) 226-5911.
