Hunting: You have more than 13,000 acres of hardwood forests and intermingled agricultural lands located along the Mississippi River are designated for bow hunting only. Some 326 Pope & Young Class (gross scores) bucks have been harvested from Tara properties since 1995. Bucks weighing over 200 pounds are common and as high as 320 pounds have been recorded. Tara is also a great place to chase a gobbling turkey!
This is looking to the left of where we had stopped and you can see an inlet from the backwaters of the MS River.

This past Sunday afternoon Bob, my brother Marion, and I headed up to Tara Wildlife for the Mississippi River Nature Festival that was held in association with Audubon Mississippi. Tara is located approximately 11-1/2 miles from Vicksburg off of HWY 465. They had a lot of activities planned, but we chose to ride in the open-air bus through the woods. This festival affords outdoor enthusiast outings to visit over 17,000 acres of managed lakes and forest, with opportunities to view Tara's abundant wildlife and migrating species of rare birds. They also hosted a Stork and Cork Weekend package with a MS River Tour. Programs were offered on the subjects such as gardening for wildlife, managing private lands for game species and other wildlife and nature with renowned guest speakers. Also on the agenda was learning new skills at their outdoor photography workshops. I must say, it was a great weekend event for our community! (I will post for the next day or so on Tara)

On April 12, 2002, the City of Vicksburg unveiled it’s first Riverfront Mural by renowned artist Robert Dafford. The electricity of this project has spread across the south and up and down the Mississippi River.
The panels of the Vicksburg floodwalls are the canvas capturing the City of Vicksburg’s crucial past, present and future roles in American history, commerce, culture, religion, and technology.
