The Mississippi secretary of state's office has made it easier for the public to obtain information on hunting and fishing leases on 16th Section school lands.
Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says that at his office's Web site, users will see a map of Mississippi with deer icons representing the approximate location of each lease.
Users can see which leases which expire in 2010 and leases on which the bidding process is currently open.
Also listed is the current amount of the lease, acreage, school district contact information, as well as the forest management plan for the particular parcel.
Bids may also be placed online for the 191 section leases set to expire this year.
