The only hunting in deep south MS will be the Pascagoula WMA & river basin or go east to Pearl River or a bit further to the Slidell, LA area. You'll need a boat and mostly only shoot Woodies, Teal, and a few Divers. Not many puddle ducks in large numbers make it down to that area. If you're looking for flooded ag fields and most soil areas you'll need to head north to the Delta region. The further north you go the more duck traffic you'll see, and there's lot MS WMA and even Fed. areas for duck hunting. However, you will need an ATV to access most of the hunting units, and everyone has different rules and regs. on which days they hunt them. The MDWFP web site has lots of infor on all the state WMA's. Hope this helps a bit, and thank you for your service.
