Kareen's Lucky #13 Hog

My Facebook friend Kareen of Alpine, Texas got hog #13 over the weekend. Here is the story of her kill in her own words.

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.




My congratulations to Kareen on lucky #13 in great wild Texas outdoors!

Teaching His Daughters How To Fish

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!

Happy 7th Birthday To Oliver Love


My Great Nephew, Oliver Love had a nice birthday party this past Saturday with a BarB-Que meal with all the trimmings, and ice cream, and cake.  A lot of his friends showed up and his family.  There was a huge waterslide in the backyard with a jumping room.  Oliver is sitting down at the bottom while his friend is flying into the slide.

Checking out one of his presents.


I heard he got more money than presents.  Racked up $275.00


Getting ready to hit the pinata!


Oliver the first one up to bat!


Dad and Mom watching over him.


Almost busted the pinata open.


Kids taking turns trying to hit the pinata.  The young boy with the blue towel around him ended up busting it and candy went flying everywhere and kids too!


Time to get down to business, make a wish, and blow out the candles.


I hope his wish comes true.

Oliver struggled with it and I told him I love him and he said he loved me too!

Happy 7th Birthday, Oliver!

Why Lee Lakosky Quit his Daytime Job


"Literally October 1st walked into work and quit... I'm just not happy doing that." It's no doubt that Lee Lakosky harvests big deer year after year. But, it all started with a dream, a risk, and a whole bunch of hard work. Here's the story.

A Great Find


Chris Mann of Amory, Mississippi, an outdoor writer for Our Tupelo on Facebook was scouting for deer recently along the Tombigbee River and found this pipe washed up in the sand. After cleaning it up, it has the French flag on one side and the British flag on the other. He was not sure what time period it is from, but think maybe the 16th century? It is made from clay and the bowl is oblong instead of perfectly round indicating hand made. The French flag appears to have been hand-drawn with a stick or something. It was a cool find! Any anthropologists or archaeologists with insight? #MississippiHistory


My congratulations to Chris on a great find in our historic and wonderful Missississippi outdoors!

Running Loose


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!
