Frankie Farmer and his two sons of Kosciusko, Mississippi had a great hunting adventure.  The Monday before Thanksgiving is a day Farmer said he would never forget with the family getting three deer.  It was his son on the right who got his very first buck.  He is so proud of his boys and what a great hunt to remember for the rest of their lives.  My congratulations to all the proud hunters in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors.

Great Grandson Ian On 4-Wheeler

I took this picture of my Great Grandson, Ian, on top of a 4-wheeler in the bed of his Dad's truck day before yesterday.  He is trying to shoot his first deer this season and hopefully, he will.  I can't wait to post a picture of him with it.  Ian turned 12 years old last month.  I'm so lucky to have three more Great Grandsons.  Tidus is also 12-year old in Montana and Noah 1-year-old and William David 2-years-old in Magee, MS.

Little Aubrey's Very First Deer!

John Lauderdale of Batesville, Mississippi, daughter Aubrey (6-1/2 years old), killed her very first deer. He didn't get the beginning video of her because he had to stand behind her so she wouldn’t fall out of the chair, but she did the rest. He said words cannot describe how proud he was of Aubrey. She told her Dad she loves deer hunting now. He can’t wait until their next hunt.  Aubrey used a 6.5 Creedmoor rifle.   I'm so proud of little Aubrey starting her hunting career so young that will last a lifetime in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!  #allbyherself

Dad finally convinced her to put the blood on! We have a lifetime hunter in the making.

Congratulations little Aubrey!

A Woman Killed By A Feral Hog in Texas

Feral hogs have attacked and killed a woman in Chambers County, TX.
The death of Christine Rollins, 59, of Anahuac, TX has officially been ruled caused by feral hogs.
Rollins was killed outside of a home on Highway 61 near Anahuac where she was a caretaker for an elderly couple.
The most important thing here is that someone lost their life. Family and friends will grieve the unthinkable loss of their loved one to something so horrible a few could imagine.
As feral hog populations soar in Texas and spread into new territory all around the nation, more attacks will happen.
Some basic information you need to know about hogs. 
*Hogs are dangerous. They can attack and kill. Never approach them.
*Never approach even cute piglets. Baby feral hogs are adorable but their mothers (sows) will go to any length to protect them. The sow may be out of the line of sight if you see tiny pigs but she is nearby and will respond.
*Do not feed hogs. Unless hogs are being baited in a wild location in preparation for hunting them, do not feed them. Never feed around houses or in parks. In areas like urban centers where hogs are never hunted, they can seem tame. Do not make them accustomed to seeing people as a food source. Additionally, do not throw scraps outside. That can also attract hogs.
*Be especially mindful of large, solitary boars. If you see such an animal on a hiking trail, for example, give it wide berth and report to officials. That animal certainly needs to be targeted for removal and elimination.
*Shoot big boars. Many hunters don’t like killing big boars due to smell and taste of meat but statistics show most fatal attacks (nearly 90 percent) are large lone boars. Kill these hogs with no hesitation.
*Shoot sows first. If you have a group of hogs coming in with the typical size structure of hogs 150 pounds and below, shoot sows, then boars. The more sows we take out the fewer hogs areas will produce.
*Trap. Trap. Trap. If you have a deer lease, pool resources with other lease members and get hog traps going. Mature hogs will become trap shy but you will catch younger hogs along with others. Keep the pressure on year-round. No mercy.
*Turn in hog traffickers. If you know of people releasing feral hogs into open range for hunting purposes turn them in. It’s illegal. Very few people do this any more but this is the key reason hog numbers have spread so far. A handful of hunters have released them into different areas
I have seen feral hogs while hunting at the famous Christmas Place Plantation & Hunting Club on the edge of the MS Delta while deer hunting. I shot two hogs 3 years ago, a sow weighing 180 lbs. and a smaller one running.  It was about 12 out in an opened field.  Another time while hunting, I decided to walk to the road and wait to be picked up by a hunter and was so close I could hear them in a bush.  After that happened, I just stay in my stand and wait for hunters to come and pick me up.  It was a frightening experience and lucky I wasn't attacked.

It's Never Too Late Or Too Old @ Age 104

Florence Teeters isn’t letting her age stop her from experiencing one of the state’s most popular fall traditions.
According to a Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources database, preliminary data shows Teeters is the oldest person to date to purchase a gun deer license and harvest a deer.
She bagged a small buck during the gun hunting season.
Teeters is something of an adventurer.
She also recently went ziplining.
It was reported by NBC25 that Teeters shot the deer while hunting with her son in Price County, about 270 northwest of Milwaukee.
"I took mom out to the blind this year.  I had a nice chair for her and it was nice and warm.  A little after 4 p.m., a buck shows up about 30 yeards away.  I tapped her on the knee and I pointed.  She nodded and smiled and was really quiet.  Then she took the shot," her son Bill Teeters said.
Her son told the Madison TV station she wanted to go hunting because she likes being outdoors.
That is awesome to kill a deer at the age of 104!  I just want to make it to my 80's and hope I have good health to keep hunting as long as I can in our great outdoors!  My congratulations to Florence and it goes to show you that it is never too late or too old to get out there and deer hunt.

A Calcasieu Parish man died in a hunting accident last Sunday in Sabine Parish.
Louisiana hunter dies in accident at his deer standThe Sabine Parish coroner’s office has identified him as 53-year-old Paul W. Landry.
It appears that the Iowa resident stumbled on a large tree stump, causing him to tumble forward and strike his face or head on the lowest rung of his 14-foot metal ladder deer stand, Sabine Coroner Ron Rivers said.
The accident happened several hundred yards down a a high line that crosses Rattan Road off Louisiana Highway 473 in southern Sabine Parish.
Family members found Landry dead on the ground at the foot of his ladder deer stand when they went to check on him after he failed to answer repeated phone calls about noon, the coroner said.
Landry had left his residence to go deer hunting about 5:30 a.m.
Evidence shows he made several trips to take his weapon and backpack up his ladder stand.
