I was out by 7:55 p.m. Some deer were there but ran off when I walked up. Then some javelinas came in and a short while later they all ran off. I looked to my right and could see a boar coming in from the other pasture since there is enough moonlight to see. He flitted around but would never settle down and ran off. I told myself that some other hog could come in so I waited. Sure enough, a short time later I could see the shadow of a hog. He finally came in and I really wanted to shoot him in the lungs but he presented a headshot so that is what I took. Down he went but he was still breathing although I knew he would not get back up. I waited a few minutes and then put one point-blank in his head and he did his death dance and was done. He was a neat looking hog, had some light coloring underneath. That makes 13 for the year and 183 in total. Awesome! I shot him at 8:45 p.m.

The United Launch Alliance (ULA) just passed through Vicksburg Tuesday. This ship is designed to transport rockets. What an awesome sight to see coming through my hometown on the Mississippi River. Thanks to Jim Murphy for taking this picture.
The launch is coming up soon.

Steven Albright of Starkville, Mississippi spent the morning recently enjoying a cool cloudy day teaching his cute daughters how to catch a catfish on the Tennesse Tombigbee. He said that they played hard and fished hard. Here are some cute pictures he took of his daughters in our great wild Mississippi outdoors! Making precious memories!
Steven said that this catfish bit off more than it could chew!
My congratulation to these two new Fishermans!

John Scarborough of Richton, Mississippi took out this guy with a pellet gun while running loose around the hunting camp. This was a non-poisonouse water rat and now the hunters at the camp feel like their lives are over with because of John's kill. I do wonder if they will have it mounted. Congratulations to John on a job well done in our great Mississippi indoors!
