The Foundation and the MDWFP is putting forth the effort with this program to hopefully attract more Mississippi youth into the out-of-doors.
Implementation of AIMS has been a cooperative effort by the MDWFP, the Foundation, the Mississippi Department of Education and the Mississippi Private School Association.
's website offers information on bobwhite numbers, conservation/'land use practices, hunting (Mississippi had an eight-bird bag limit last year) and more, including a Small Game Hunter Survey that researchers say is a valuable tool for quail management.
By going on the MDWFP
website from December 28 until January 10, hunters with WMA User Permits may apply for limited-draw hunts for January 25 to 31.
In November, the MDWFP Commission elected to continue its involvement in the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies' state grants program to support habitat conservation for waterfowl in Canada.
This year, MDWFP contributed $100,000 through Ducks Unlimited to conserve waterfowl breeding ground habitat in Saskatchewan.

Through the determination and diligence of the Mississippi Department of Wildlife Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP), the USFWS and state wildlife agencies across the South, the American alligator was saved.
MDWFP has done an amazing job of educating the public and requiring alligator hunters to complete a four-hour course focusing on alligator history, biology, and research, capture and harvest methods, tagging and reporting, skinning and processing instructions, and hunting and boat safety.
Some lakes fish better than others at different times of the year, and fishing reports and forums can easily be accessed on the MDWFP
website at www.mdwfp.com.
