|A simple gobble makes day worthwhile

It’s March now, and spring is on the way. We can soon look forward to blooming dogwoods, spawning crappie and to the thunderous gobbles of turkeys, resounding through the woods.
Ever since I was introduced to turkey hunting 25 years ago, nothing has signaled the arrival of spring more than hearing a gobbler bellow his morning call at sunrise.
My late friend Boyd Burrow was so impassioned by the sound that he spent most of his February, March and April mornings driving somewhere just to hear one gobble.

My alma mater's football program has had this motto for years: “Anyone, anytime, anywhere.” The obvious meaning is that they’re willing to play any team at any time on any field the other chooses.
Kind of sounds a lot like my fishing philosophy. I’ll fish for anything that will bite my hook on any water where and when that type of fish is biting.
Doesn't matter to me what it is, if it is willing to dance, I’m ready to crank up the music. I have fished for all the normal species, including:

Steve Rogers never fired a shot during Mississippi’s 2013-14 gun season on deer, but he’ll tell you right away “it is hands down, the best deer season I have ever had.”
When he tells the story, it’s easy to see why.
It was the first season his 7-year-old son Reed was able to handle a gun and could be the hunter when they shared a stand. The youngster far exceeded any expectations his dad had.
Reed Rogers limited out on bucks, culminating in a 140-inch 10-point taken on Jan. 31, in the final hour of the final day of the season.

As a young’un growing up with a heavy influence of countrified, or should I say country-fried grandparents, I learned early the delicious taste of wild game.
My grandpa Willie killed his share, and my grandma Mary cooked it all. The winter never ended without their freezer full of deer, squirrel, rabbit, frog, duck and even a raccoon or two.
And my spring and summer visits usually included three meals a day from that delicious food reserve. I loved it all, and why wouldn’t I. Those days were long before we worried about lard, bacon drippings and everything else Grandma used to turn wild into wonderful.

I pity the guy, or guys, or team of guys who have to score the buck taken Dec. 17 by Hunter Bower of Vaughn. It could very easily be the toughest task he or they will face in 2014.

Spotting what he called “a little nervous water” in a shallow cove on an unseasonably calm Monday, Capt. Sonny Schindler turned his trolling motor and pointed his 23-foot boat across a small bay in the Biloxi Marsh.

The buck James Mrowczynski killed Saturday morning below the spillway at Barnett Reservoir is a modest one, even by his standards from past hunting experiences in his native western New York.

I once had a hunting buddy whose favorite time to hunt was in the rain.
Thunderstorms would be in the forecast, and he was always the first one at camp ready for the stand draw. If we were a minute or two late, he’d start without us, put a pin on the stand he was going to and he’d leave.
Usually, there’d be a terse note: “Rain.”
Curious sort was he, so I had to ask ….

If there is a fishing lesson to be learned from last week’s Bassmaster Central Open on Barnett Reservoir, it is to keep fishing simple and never overlook the obvious.

The craziness of alligator season in Mississippi hit a fevered pitch last Monday when program coordinator Ricky Flynt couldn’t find any other way to describe what he’d seen.
