    Well i had the chance to get some kids in the woods in search of some tree rats. My cousin and his son and one of his friends came in from texas to join my other cousin, my nephew and me on a squirrel hunt. The lil fella in the middle of the picture was shooting a single barrel 410 and he got his first fox squirrel. I believe his face tells the story. It was a great weekend with family and having the youngsters in the woods was a blast. It brought back alot of childhood memories hunting with dad and his dogs. Just remember when you get the chance take a kid hunting, fishing, or just outdoors.

    I know this is not the best photo but it was some good times. Me and my nephew had gotten up at 0400 and fished a bass tournament. We fished til 1400 hrs and had one bite. So we loaded up and headed back to the camp. We managed to catch 14 white perch and of course a couple bass (how ironic LOL!) that afternoon and had a great time. This is my lil nephew wanting to clean his own fish. We cleaned em and ate em. then we also went on to fish the entire night until 0400 hrs the next morning catching somewhere around 150 but only kept 40. Made for a long day but a great time for the youngsters.

    They have taken over the rice bran. I had 168 pics in a night behind my house none the less!

    Once i had an old man tell me to never catch more than you want to clean. These fish were caught in a day on the river and in the lakes. We had a couple lines out and ran them two times and pulled them up cause we had enough fish. We then decided to go to the lake and run yo yos and jug fish a lil. Well that turned into work. We had 3 dozen yo yos and never got to put all of them out. and then decided it was time to quit! It was a great day with great weather and spending time with my cousin but the next day skinning fish all day that was a bummer. Just looking forward to the next trip.

    Well it is that time of year were we all start planting food plots, clearing lanes, and preparing for the season to come. I have to say i love this time of year but i also cant help but to think about the hunts from the past.
    This past November, I had a chance to take a special friend of mine hunting. You will have to see my post about our fishing trip to get a little history about him. He came to stay with me for a week during his Thanksgiving break. As luck would have it got warm and the wind was blowing every day. We had hunted for 4 days and seen a few deer every day but being the first time he was a little nervous and couldnt seem to get a good shot.
    I called up a good friend of mine and he told us to come to his place. We get there on our 5th day of hunting (the wed. before thanksgiving) and we sit in a nice box overlooking a wheat field. I was wanting this young man to kill his first deer just as bad as he was wanting to kill one. I had a video camera and couldnt wait. We sat until it was getting dark and as i was putting up the camera i noticed movement coming down the road. I told him to get ready and his heart rate shot through the roof and he started breathing hard. When he seen the deer come into the field i told him to take one when they turned broad sided. We picked the biggest one and he was watching in scope and shaking the whole stand. When she turned broadsided he squeezed the trigger. Nothing happen! He was so nervous he forgot to put gun on fire. We got a chuckle out of it and i told him to go on and shoot. He flipped to fire and took the shot.
    The deer broke and took off stumbling out of food plot. I was so excited for him. I went to shake his hand and he just hugged my neck with tears of joy in his eyes. (Of course i will admit i had them in mine too) It was an awesome hunt to see a young man that has over come alot of life's obstacles that has came his way. He was so excited and the whole family got to come to the camp and see him with his first kill. He later asked me why i had tears in my eyes but one i was so happy and we had worked hard for that one deer but i also remember the hunts shared with friends and family that has passed away. I dont believe any one forgets their first deer. I was lucky enough to share that memory with my dad.
    Sorry i have carried on about much of nothing but i think as we prepare for this hunting season we should all think about the impact that we can have. Take a young one fishing or hunting help show them the great outdoors. As we plan our hunting season take time to give someone the experience they may never have if you dont make it possible. I know that I will have this young man back this season. He has him a bow and he is now looking for his first bow kill.

    This deer came to my yard several times last year and he was never taken. I cant wait to see what he looks like this year.

    August 10, 2011 at 10:51am

    I really do not know where to begin. I had a special chance to spend some quality time with two 13 year old boys on the MS river. One of them my nephew. It seems like just last week we were fishing and i was helping him bait his hook. Now at 13 y/o he is running the boat up and down the river. He has learned to read the banks of the river and does a mighty fine job. The other boy, i will call him (boone) great kid from Texas. He didnt grow up on the river. Matter of fact Aug 3rd was his first time. He had never had the pleasures of baiting his own hook or handling his own fish. Our first task was to go and catch some bait. We went to a little pond off in the woods armed with a couple jig poles and some wigglers. At first he was not to sure about the baiting hooks. After i showed him and caught a few fish, he was starting to catch on. It was some where near 100 F that day but we was out of the house and having fun. I baited the hook and set him out on the mission of catching the bait. With the two boys they kept me busy. They would catch the bait and put em in the bucket. My job was to take the bucket to the live well. After a few hours of soaking in the sun it was time to hit the mighty miss. By this time the boys were having fun. We met with my brother and off to the river we went. When i backed down the ramp we got out to get the boat ready. My nephew jumped in boat and said he was ready. My brother well he stood back. My first thought was he aint running the motor just last week i thought i baited his hook. Well much to my suprize i was wrong. I backed him down and he had it under control. we all got in and headed up river. We started putting out the lines and the boys were having a blast. Alot of laughs and jokes from one end of the boat to the other. After the lines were set it was time to pole fish. We found a nice sand bar with a shade tree but we didnt find no fish. We got to enjoy the sunset on the mighty miss. As the soond started to sink we decided we would run lines and rebait for night fall. The first line we came to had several cats on it. The first fish we come to maybe 15 lbs, my brother netted and we had him in the boat. Well at this point I thought Ol Boone was fixing to leave the boat. This is a boy that has grown up in the city. He had never touched a fish. At first he was a little shy of it to say the least. I told him it was time to become a redneck. We were far from the city lights now. And besides the next day he had to be the net man. We finished with about 10 good size cats as the sun sank we loaded the boat waiting to see what the next day would bring.
    Well the boys being boys stayed up playing games till a little past midnight. So 0600 morning one, i had the pleasure of turning the boxer bulldog loose in the beds with them. They got up and off we went. Boone was titled net man and well my nephew the motorman. We hit the river to enjoy another beautiful sunrise on the river. Our first line well it was loaded. We had some good ones. After all four lines were run we had a plenty of fish. Now it was time for pictures and the cleaning.
    I reckon to keep from boring everyone i will carry on. I had the pleasure of spending three days on the river. Boone well he went from never touching a fish to throwing them around. And my nephew well boy am I glad he is now a lil man. He went to helping skin the fish. After all this we decided it was time for a break 3 hot long days on the river and several hundred pounds of catfish. We earned the break. Now it was time to do some perch jerking.
    We headed to an ox bow lake and the water was pretty. i started getting the poles ready and was preparing to help boone. This would only be his second time doing this. Next thing i know here is my nephew again. He started showing boone how to do everything. I almost felt as if i was to old to be there. I let him go on and teach boone how to do it. It made me sad in some ways and proud in others. I use to help him and now well he didnt need me. Although to see him taking up time with someone else was great. We did catch a few perch and it was time to the cabin. Next morning well we had to try it again. We caught a few more fish. By this time boone had become a lil redneck. He had a different look about him and was even talking different. I will never forget the memories of this special trip. See attached pics. I think you can see the enjoyment on boones face! Never mind me i am the one that looks wore out.
    Remember what we do for ourselves when we die dies with us. What we do for others remains immortal. Take every chance you can to get a youth outdoors.

    A comment titled: Predator hunters in response to a report titled: Coyote Pics

    I love to hunt coyotes due to the fact they kill so many young deer etc.. But if there are any predator hunters reading this they should check the MDWF and contact their commisioner of there region. They are passing a law where we can no longer hunt at night unless on land that is deeded in your name. Coyotes cause alot of harm to the deer and turkeys and now that not many people trap they are becoming abundant.

    A comment titled: Awesome in response to a report titled: what the outdoors are all about!!!

    You are right on target. That is what it is about.

    A comment titled: Now thats what it's about!! in response to a report titled: Last Chance Hunting Club youth hunt

    It is just the right thing to do and i think the kids smile speaks volumes! I know that nov 5th i got invited to hunt with friends and family. I was hunting along a wheat field and let every deer walk because the kids were hunting in field. One my 5y/o nephew killed his first deer and the other 11 y/o got to take him a nice doe. Then to finish that day off watching LSU and BAMA. What a great weekend.

    A comment titled: LOL in response to a report titled: Dont catch more than you want to clean!

    No doubt they will probably be cooked very close to where they was caught. I didnt have the pic of the perch. We caught 30 white perch saturday morning in the rain. Boat would not start so we just fished with trolling motor and caught 30 then went on to have a good dove hunt for opening day! But now i am back at work LOL!

    A comment titled: My hats off to you! in response to a report titled: beard and spur displays

    Just wanted to say you have a nice spread there. I always say i am going to do something with the beards or spurs but i put them in the shop and then they are usually tossed out. I have killed some nice birds but i think you have me beat by a mile. I killed my first at eight years old. had 10 1/2 in beard and 1 1/4 spurs. since then i have killed several with longer beards but spurs the same.
