Meeting Kevin!

Sunday afternoon my daughter, granddaughter and I met with Kevin at the Olive Garden in Central Park in Fredericksburg, VA. The first thing I noticed was this tall nice looking guy standing at the door with antler sheds across his beige T-shirt and a big smile on his face...I knew at once this was Kevin! He was very cordial and we all really enjoyed visiting with him. We talked about OBS and how we were looking forward to meeting all our blogger friends in St. Louis, MO, next year in March, especially Kristine. We also talked about Rex and how he was looking forward to hunting at his Christmas Place Hunting Club and said he will try to outsmart old Thunderhoof. We mentioned Ivan in Peru and Othmar in Canada. He told us of a bear he harvested four weeks ago with his bow. I asked him about his Moose Hunt Fundraiser and how things were going with that. I only knew what Kevin looked like from his old profile picture of laying on the side of a hill with a cool hat on...I asked him where it was and he said in his truck...I wanted a picture with and without his hat on. He is a very busy man and had had a business meeting that morning and was preparing for a trip to Ohio later that evening. What a treat it was to meet someone you know online in person. Maybe next time when I come up to Virginia, we will have Matt join us and have our own little summit. Charming, Just Charming!

Virginia Deerfight


I just got an email from Kevin at HuntingLife.com. He says I have it wrong, Marian is meeting him and not that really ugly guy, Matt something or other.
Another email later and Matt says he will be glad to meet her because he actually has some southern charm unlike some people.
The next email said tell Matt that not only is Marian taking Kevin bow hunting at the famous Christmas Place but she is going to show him the secret lair of that evil Thunderhoof.
From there it degenerated into name calling, nyah-nyah's and something about glue.
Marian- hurry home and stay away from the Captain.

A Virginia Meeting

.Just got off the phone with Marian and she is safely in Virginia. She said to make sure everyone knew she was having a great time and really enjoyed the 4 hour delay she received in Atlanta. I think she used the word frazzled. Anyway, first a birthday party and then a secret blogger meeting with a handsome dude with a Bright Idea. Could be they will talk about the Youth Hunt coming up or at least a bowhunt at the famous Christmas Place this year. Of course, it could be just an excuse to drink an ice cold (soda pop)?
I think I better contact The Captain to keep an eye on them.

Marian -vs- Thunderhoof

Do not be fooled, as much as my friend Marian swears that she is going to blast that pesky deer, she has a soft spot for him too. It just bugs me that for some reason all the women seem to have a thing for him. It is sickening.
I remember the first time she came to camp. It was summer and I was hoping that crazy deer would stay away, but noooo... he showed up. When Bob and I pulled up to the Indian Mound she was checking out, there the two of them stood. Marian waved and I saw she was feeding that stupid varmint something. Oh, she had come prepared... she had a whole pocket full of sugar cubes. Petting and fawning over him, scratching his neck, petting him. Thunderhoof gave his familiar grunt-snicker and disappeared into the woods. Marian just smiled and thought it was funny. So do not be fooled, she might blast him but the odds are that she will just feed him more sugar cubes.

Black Bears in Warren County

Sharon Ginger tags a 250-pound black bear trapped in a wild hog trap at Willow Break Hunt Club off Mississippi 3 in July 2005. After it waked, the bear was released unharmed in our great wild outdoors!

Today there was an interesting article about Black Bears being on the rise here in our area that I wanted to share with you....(Black Bear site has a live webcam from Ely, Minnesota)

Warren County's population of Louisiana black bears is on the rise, creating a steady trend, and no sign of their presence here slowing down, said biologist Brad Young, who specializes in bears and their habits for the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.

An increase in the number of bears gives good reason for people to learn to live with the furry creatures, he added.

"It seems there are just more showing up and more sightings," he said. "It's nothing that should be feared. People just need to get used to having them around. They need to learn to co-habitate, because the population is growing. It's not exploding, but I want people to be aware that they're present in and around Warren County."

Young estimates about 100 bears living in Mississippi, up a few from last year and up about 75 from six years ago when Young began working for the state agency.

The bear increase is natural, not created by importing animals. It has also fostered a desire to have more bears trapped and collared, so movements - breeding and eating patterns - can be tracked by biologists. So far, 13 bears have been collared in Mississippi. Young, who travels to all areas of the state where bears are spotted, said he hopes to increase that number by setting more traps.

"We want to make a push to get GPS collars on as many bears as we can," he said.

June and July are breeding months for bears, which makes this time of year a typical time for sightings, Young said. So far this year, about 30 reports have been made of bears roaming between Claiborne, Warren and Issaquena counties. Young believes five or six bears call Warren County home at any given time. In recent weeks, the same bear has been spotted about three times at Steele Bayou, Young said. Another black bear wasn't seen, but left some evidence of his whereabouts for the past eight or so months.

His collar, placed on him last November at Davis Island in Warren County, had been ripped off and left in a corn field in Louisiana, Young said, which likely means the bear had a fight with another male bear. What it did show, though, was exactly where the bear had traveled, scavenging for food and, perhaps, female companionship."

We downloaded 200 points all across Mississippi and Louisiana," he said.

Knowing black bears are alive and well in and around the state is good news for Young and his agency. The Louisiana black bear was nearly eliminated by the early 20th century through destruction of bottomland hardwood forests and hunting. A concerted effort from the MDWFP and local enthusiasts began rekindling the growth by the 1980s. In fact, three litters of cubs are expected to be born in the state next year.

"It's one of those things - we've always had the habitat, but we've always had a lack of bears," he said. "With these litter cubs, combined with bear populations of other states coming in...the population is growing."

Description: The Louisiana Black Bear is one of 16 recognized subspecies of American Black Bear. Adult males may weigh 300 to 400 pounds or more, and adult females 120 to over 180 pounds. Their numbers are largest in the Atchafalaya and Tensas river basins of Louisiana. They are also spreading into Texas and Arkansas and have state and federal protections as a threatened species. Although classified as carnivores, the bears are not usually active predators, and have an omnivorous diet consisting primarily of vegetable matter. They are opportunistic feeders in our great outdoors.

Pigs at the Deer Camp?

Bob, my step-son and I had just arrived at the deer camp this morning and unloaded the 4-wheeler from our truck. Greg was helping us put two of our deer stands in at our new camp that we joined this year. He had our two stands on his trailer. There were a lot of guys at the camp hanging around drinking coffee, shooting the breeze and some were working on their campers, when all of a sudden a herd of domestic pigs showed up right at our front gate. The camp sits right off the road, but is hidden by a hill on both sides. This road is a two-lane double highway. I heard an 18-wheeler blowing his horn real loud and I think I know why now. These pigs, all twelve of them had to cross over two lanes of traffic. About that time the Deputy Sheriff's car pulls into the camp. One of the hunters had gone to his camper and retrieved his .30.6. The two deputies got out - looked at the situation and then said, You guys have a great day...backed up and left. By that time the pigs were headed for the side of one of the hills. A hunter took off after them and shots were fired. Bam! Bam! Bam! Then another hunter got out his .44 mag from his truck and took off up the hill. Bam! Bam! Bam! All in all 6 pigs were harvested. The others got away. There could have been a very bad accident in front of the camp today. You sure don't want to hit one with your vehicle. So I guess before long we will be having a BIG PIG feast. The only time I did not take my camera...and this had to happened. You never know what will show up at a deer camp these days. Instead of seeing a deer, we saw 12 pigs! What a site to behold. Charming, Just Charming!

Alligator Hunting In MS

An alligator swims in a pond in Claiborne County
This article was taken from the Vicksburg Post yesterday stating that local landowners will have the opportunity to participate in the state's first private-lands alligator hunt, which the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP) announced and will take place Sept. 26 through Oct. 4. Private tracts in (Vicksburg) Warren, Issaquena, Yazoo, Hinds, Holmes, Madison and Rankin counties are eligible for the one-week harvest. "This season will be used as a pilot to evaluate where we'll go from here," said Ricky Flynt, MDWFP Alligator Program coordinator. "In the future I anticipate we'll expand the hunt quite a bit. We know of other counties that would be suitable for an alligator harvest right now, but we need to start with a program we can effectively evaluate."

The first alligator hunting season on public waters in Mississippi took place in 2005, and it has been expanded each year since to award more permits and include more eligible waters. The private-lands hunting season is different, said Flynt, in that it will allow for daytime hunting and for firearms to be used.
Landowners with a minimum of 20 acres of surface water have until Aug. 15 to apply for a tag. An additional tag can be obtained for every 100 acres of surface water owned in addition to the first 20 acres. Alligators must be at least 4 feet long to be harvested. Landowners are allowed to transfer tags to resident and nonresident hunters 16 and older. The cost of each permit is $100 for residents and $200 for non-residents.
Everyone who plans to take part in the hunt is required to complete a training course on Sept. 6, from 9 a.m. until noon, at the MDWFP Central Office in Jackson. Those who have completed the course required for public waters alligator hunts must also complete the private lands hunting course.
"We have no idea what the participation will be like. I expect it will be good," Flynt said.
Population estimates compiled by the MDWFP in 2000 suggest a minimum of 700 alligators are located in the roughly 36,000 acres of alligator habitat in Warren County. Issaquena and Yazoo counties are estimated to have at least 400 alligators each. Statewide, the wildlife department estimated there were about 40,000 alligators in 2000.
"I think those numbers could easily be doubled by now," said Flynt. "We're working on getting updated estimates. What wasn't taken into account in 2000 was a lot of small, private lakes."Alligators remain a protected species. Any killing of alligators without state authorization can result in prosecution.
Note: To apply applications for the first private-lands alligator hunt are available online at www.mdwfp.com/alligator, or by calling 601-432-2199. There is a nonrefundable $5 application fee, and the deadline is Aug. 15. Applicants must be at least 16 years old to hunt in our great wild outdoors. Charming, Just Charming!

More Trail Cam Pix by Dave

My hunting friend in Indiana will periodically send me e-mails of his trail cam pix. Here are two he sent me yesterday. Dave said....Got these two the other day... A couple of the nicest ones I've got this year. The bottom photo shows the deer to still be molting and getting it's summer coat. He thought it was cute though...because the deer seems to be curious about the little moth in our great outdoors near his deer camp. Charming, Just Charming!

The Delta Mariner

River watchers got a bit of a sight for the eyes when this past Monday the 310-foot Delta Mariner vessel, maintained by The Boeing Company and on its way to Florida, was passing through Vicksburg on the Mississippi River carrying two boosters for the Delta IV rocket space program. Navigable in deep or shallow drafts, the vessel was launched in 1999 at the Halter Marine Shipyard in Pascagoula, MS. Alliant Techsystems, based in Iuka, MS, built large composite structures used to assemble the family of rockets in Decatur, AL. The rockets usually propel weather and reconnaissance satellites into outer space from launch sites at Cape Canaveral, FL and Vandenberg Air Force Base in CA. The boat was designed as a part of the U.S. Department of Defense-sponsored Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle program, geared to streamline the cost of space launches. The boosters aboard the Delta Mariner are scheduled to be launched in 2009. Charming, Just Charming!

Fishing for Breakfast


These pictures were on the front page of the Vicksburg paper yesterday. It shows a great egret fishing for breakfast Tuesday morning off the boat launch at the City Water Front. Egrets have a wing span of 52 to 57 inches and weigh about 2 to 3 pounds. Their life span averages 22 to 23 years, and they are the symbol of the National Audubon Society, which was created more than a century ago to protect birds from being killed for their plumage. Below the bird begins devouring its catch.

~~~ Texas

Our dipsticks are located in DC.

Tribute To Fallen Classmate

Today I attended the funeral of yet another classmate, Joseph "Joe" F. Lindigrin, Jr. Joe graduated from the Class of 1959 from St. Aloysius High School (Brothers of the Sacred Heart) and I attended St. Francis Xavier Academy (Sisters of Mercy) in the Class of 1959. Next year we will be celebrating our 50th class reunion. This makes three out of the Class that have past away from SAHS and three from SFXA. It is so sad to lose a classmate. The picture above shows me with Joe at our 25 year reunion taken at Monsour's Restaurant back in 1984. Here is my tribute to our beloved Joe. He will sadly be missed by family, friends and classmates.
~~~~~~~~~
~Joe was born in Vicksburg, MS on June 21, 1941, and passed away unexpectedly Thursday, July 3, 2008, at Medical City Dallas at the age of 67, surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Geraldine Conn Lindigrin; son, Jeff Lindigrin (wife Andrea) of Rockwall, TX, daughter, Sherry Lindigrin of Vicksburg; mother, Frances Lindigrin, brother, John Lindigrin (wife Cherri); sister, Lynda Willoughby (husband Billy) all of Vicksburg, brother, David Lindigrin (wife Elizabeth) of Clinton, MS; and five beloved grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by father, Joe Lindigrin, Sr.; and grandparents,Lawrence and Mattie Storey and Joseph Anthony and Elizabeth Lindigrin. He graduated from St. Aloysius High in 1959, and then attended Hinds Community College and Mississippi State University. He was employed by L. M. Berry Company, where he won many outstanding sales awards. For 21 years, he owned Jackson Specialty Advertising in Jackson, MS, retiring in 2004. Lifelong Mississippians Joe and Geraldine had recently moved from Madison, MS to Rockwall, TX to be near their son and grandchildren. He always told people the youngest, Mackenzie ("Mack"), age 2 ½, had the longest little arms pulling them to leave their home state of Mississippi. Joe and Geraldine traveled extensively throughout the country and overseas. One of his favorite places was St. Andrews, Scotland where he played the old course twice. Joe never met a stranger. He easily made friends wherever he traveled with his unique personality, charm and wit. His infectious grin and laughter made him a friend to many. He was a great storyteller, and loved to tell them to everyone he met. His love for the Mississippi State Bulldogs was deep and unwavering. He never became discouraged. He was always the first to say, with all his heart, "Just wait 'til next year!"A wonderful man known for his honesty, integrity and character, Joe was widely respected for his business acumen and noted for his athletic abilities and accomplishments in football, basketball, baseball, and golf. He was also an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting and fishing. He most enjoyed spending time with his buddies at Live Oaks Golf Club and The Shores Country Club playing golf for an occasional wager. Affectionately known by his many friends as "Bogey" Joe, he was an extremely talented golfer. He was a Mississippi Walker Cup team member for several years, a senior state champion, and held many course records and club championship titles over the years at various clubs around Mississippi. He also shot his age many times and made eight holes-in-one. Joe was a member of Lakeshore Congregational Methodist Church in Jackson, MS.

Sunset at Vicksburg Bridges

Took this picture a little while ago as the sun was setting by the bridges with our American Flag flying overhead. What a beautiful end to a nice Fourth of July holiday weekend celebration.

Catfishing

Showing off their catches of the day are Jacob Stevens, 9, Dillon Johnson, 11, Jay Vines, 29, and Frank Johnson, 46. The four caught the catfish Thursday morning on the Mississippi River near LeTourneau. Vines and Frank Johnson, who are cousins, estimated the larger catfish to weigh about 60 pounds. About 10 minutes later they caught the other catfish, which weighed about 20 pounds. Stevens is Vines' stepson, and Dillon Johnson is the son of Frank Johnson. They were all having a fishing fiesta!

Illegal Hunting in MS

Two Mississippi men are headed to federal prison on multiple wildlife charges - including illegally spotlighting and killing whitetail deer - and for selling methamphetamine.

Samuel Necaise of Picayune and Mark Necaise of Kilm, were sentenced on June 26 by Senior U. S. District Judge David C. Bramlette in Natchez federal court. Mark Necaise, known as "Scope," received 10 years and one month on two counts related to meth sales and four wildlife violations. Samuel Necaise received three years and 10 months on one count of meth sales and two wildlife violations. Both men had previously pleaded guilty to all charges.

"Operation Stone Duck" is an ongoing joint investigation involving the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks, the U.S. Attorney's Office and federal agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U. S. Fish and Wildlife Services and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

The operation initially focused on the illegal killing of trophy whitetail deer and migratory game birds in MS, however, it led to the discovery of the meth sales as well as the possession and manufacturing of automatic weapons. Most of the spotlighting and poaching of trophy bucks took place on Panther Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in Sharkey and Yazoo counties, John C. Stennis Space Center in Hancock County and other private, state and federal properties, said authorities.

They were arrested following a raid in October 2007 which turned up 80 firearms, drugs and 55 mounted whitetail bucks, some of which were poached. Three vehicles were also seized by authorities.

State and federal agencies are working together to put criminals in prison and keep them there. They said, they would do everything they can to put away drug dealers and those who illegally kill wildlife in our great outdoors.

Fireworks in Downtown Vicksburg


This picture I took looks like birds flying in the air!



The City of Vicksburg officials expected 12,000 people to show up tonight to kick off Vicksburg's July Fourth celebration with the Still Surfin: Beach Boys (tribute band concert) on Levee Street at the Old Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Railroad Depot. I believe all 12,000 people were there - PLUS! The fireworks started at 9:00 and lasted 22 minutes over the Yazoo Diversion Canal. A very nice turnout and the weather was just perfect. May God Bless America!

My Deer Background

I came across this deer picture on a MySpace site from a friend who was using this as their background. I liked it so much that copied it and now using it for my background on my computer. As you can see, John R. Ford, is the photographer. One of his photos front the page of a book called, Whitetail Hunting: Top-Notch Strategies for Hunting North America's Most Popular Big-Game Animal. He has had numerous photos on the front cover of a hunting magazine called, Successful Hunter. The colors are so vibrant and the two bucks are awesome creatures in our great outdoors!

Women Gone Hunting



Recently I had a new friend added to my MySpace who lives in South Carolina and she has a website called, Women Gone Hunting. Women Gone Hunting is the first and the only show (see promo on site) of its kind in the industry – and it is long overdue, she said. This show will feature all women on its staff, Cindy, Dena, Jenny, Tara and Sue. It shows hunting and fishing on each episode, to the design of their logo and their website - each area of their show is done by women of their own staff, and for once it is their husbands who are behind the scenes helping run the cameras. While right now there are many shows that occasionally have women featured or the wife of the host is on the show - there are NO other shows of ALL WOMEN currently on the air! She said this is the ONLY show of it's kind to be aired....we are not supermodels or going to be wearing bikinis or tiny little tank tops - we are REAL women with careers and families and curves! The women on our staff are mothers and grandmothers who are balancing out their families and careers with the love of the outdoors. What a sweetthing!

Music for Women Gone Hunting courtsey of Colt Ford!
