Unlike the previous few seasons, when new regulations and dates were included, Mississippi’s deer hunters will only a see a few minor changes in the 2015-16 season, and those are caused by the calendar.

The Hill Zone is defined as those areas east of I-55 and north of I-20 plus areas south of I-20 and east of U.S. Highway 61, excluding areas south of U.S. Highway 84 and east of Mississippi Highway 35.
