Bob and I are headed to the MS Delta to hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club for the weekend. We hope to harvest a pig or a doe or maybe both! We are looking forward to seeing and visiting with the Howell Family of Deer Camp Blog with their friends. The weather is not looking very good with a prediction of 40% rain for Saturday and more for Sunday. We may get a morning hunt in and not sure about an evening hunt but should have plenty of time to visit. :)
While on the subject of hunting, I came across this article on the Internet the other day. I have not seen it in the paper yet but when hunting starts we unfortunately have accidents. Please be careful and make sure you know what you are aiming at!
From HEIDELBERG, MS — Officials are investigating a deadly hunting incident in Jasper County.
WDAM-TV reports that the incident involved a husband and wife who were hunting Saturday and became separated near Heidelberg. The husband reportedly shot his wife after mistaking her for a deer.
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks is investigating the incident, along with the Jasper County Sheriff's Department.
Sheriff's investigator Thad Windham confirmed a fatal shooting had occurred, but referred questions to the wildlife agency. An agency spokesman James Walker couldn't be reached immediately for comment Monday.
