    Hunters can limit out anywhere, but there are a few special places where a hunt can become a legend passed on for years. Listed by Outdoor Life Magazine as one of the top 200 places for outdoorsmen to live, Washington County offers deer, turkey, squirrel, duck, geese, dove and other game pursuit that will fuel tales for ages. Anglers happily (and successfully) pursue bass, crappie, bream and the many other gamefish in the thousands of acres of oxbow lakes that mark former pathways of the meandering Mississippi. But you don’t have to do it on your own. Professional hunting and fishing guides are available to help you begin planning your Washington County wildlife adventure. And it’s not just for the hook-and-bullet crowd. With binoculars, life lists and cameras, bird watchers here can spot more than 275 of the 380 species recorded in the state’s annual Audubon Society bird count.
