Welcome to the new Jeff Simmons’ Deer Report. We will be updating you on the deer season, our Simmons’ Sporting Goods Big Buck Contest and other important hunting news here throughout the 2015-16 season! Bow hunters are already in the woods. Primitive weapons hunters get the next shot, followed by gun season.


And just like last year, we will also have a daily Duck Report on the Simmons’ web page. Stay tuned!

It won’t be long until Louisiana’s gun season opens in Area 3 for the first split on Oct. 17 – Nov. 29. Area 2 hunters follow two weeks later with an uninterrupted Oct. 31-Dec. 8 season. Area 1 opens on Nov. 21-Dec. 11 for the first split.

Make sure and double check season dates, Area boundaries and restrictions in the area you hunt. Following the rules and regulations is the individual responsibility of the hunter. And most importantly of all — make sure you always put safety first. We also have links on the page to let you easily check regulations and limits in Arkansas and Mississippi.

Don’t put off getting all your deer hunting gear in order. Come by the store and get prepared. We have the largest selection of sporting goods in the region and if you don’t find what you want, let us know and we’ll get it for you. If you have any, questions, make sure and ask one of our employees and we will get you fixed up.

Safe hunting.
