VICKSBURG, Miss. --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District announces that Grenada Lake will once again open two areas specifically for archery hunting during the 2022-2023 hunting season.
Hunters must register at the Grenada Lake Visitor Center to be able to hunt in these areas. Registration will open on Sept. 20. Hunters will have the option to use crossbows, compound bows, as well as traditional archery equipment. All state and federal regulations will be enforced.
The designated hunting zones are as follows:
Area 1: The Quail Management Area: Located at the North End of the Grenada Dam. This area will be closed October 1, 2022 to January 1, 2023 for other designated special hunts and will open for archery only hunting on January 2, 2023. The area will then remain open through the end of deer season.
Area 2: The USACE property located on the south side of Old Highway 8 between 333 Restaurant & Wolf Creek Hollow. This area will be open from October 1, 2022 to January 31, 2023.
Hunters that register to hunt in these areas will receive a packet containing all the rules and regulations as well as detailed maps of each designated area. Any missing or false information will result in a rejection of the application.
The objective of this hunt is to reduce the doe population in order to minimize habitat degradation and gather data pertaining to the deer herd.
