Myself and 3 friends having been planning a trip up from Vicksburg MS to the Mount Ida area for a little 3 day weekend. We picked Nov 9-11, but while talking to the Ranger about some questions we had he mentioned that the 10th was opening day of Rifle Season. Now down here opening day of rifle season on public land is down right scary. More people than land. Is it like that up there? Do we need to scrap the trip. We wanted to cruise some Forest Roads and do a little hiking. Thanks.
