Mississippi’s alligator hunting season opens at noon Friday for 10 days.
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks says a total of 930 permits in seven hunting zones statewide were offered in two random drawings in mid-June. There were over 4,000 applicants.
The department’s alligator program coordinator, Ricky Flynt, says he’s expecting high participation among hunters during the season, which closes at noon on Monday, Sept. 10.
