Part 2: The End of an Unforgettable Deer Season

With my truck pointed north, I’d often look up at the outdoor temperature gauge to see what it was reading. Per usual, the further north I got, the lower the temperature reading would be. However, once I was a little over half-way to my destination, it began to drop dramatically. Keep in mind, I’m wearingContinue reading “Part 2: The End of an Unforgettable Deer Season”

Part 1: The End of an Unforgettable Deer Season

Many times I have sat in a deer stand and watched the sun fade below the trees on my last hunt of the season. The shadows begin to creep across the landscape. The cold evening breeze breathes one last gasp before a dark stillness takes over. The forest becomes quiet as stars begin to blanketContinue reading “Part 1: The End of an Unforgettable Deer Season”

2021: A Year’s Worth of Memories in Review

Am I the only person that feels like 2021 has gone by in a flash? I feel like we just turned the calendar yesterday! After what many perceived to have been a dreadful 2020, this year felt like a new start.

Smith County: The Place for Old, Rusty Cars and Christmas Eve Bucks

It almost feels like karma that the opening week of the rut in the South Delta has come and gone while I’ve been mostly confined to my bed with a touch of pneumonia. That’s what I get for writing about how we’ve avoided any real illness in the last year or so. Thankfully, I’ve prettyContinue reading “Smith County: The Place for Old, Rusty Cars and Christmas Eve Bucks”

Covid Is the Least Concerning Problem For Deer

Over the last year and a half, I have desperately tried to avoid writing about anything related to Covid. I felt like there were plenty of other folks scaring the mess out of everyone without me adding to it. That said, I cannot deny that Covid hasn’t been a major factor in my life, andContinue reading “Covid Is the Least Concerning Problem For Deer”

Rut Aside, When’s the Best Time to Hunt?

As the days pass, we get closer and closer to the rut. For many, this will provide the best opportunity to bag a trophy buck (trophy meaning whatever makes you happy). The bucks are obviously a little easier to kill during this time, as they throw caution to the wind in pursuit of hot does.Continue reading “Rut Aside, When’s the Best Time to Hunt?”

Life Is Too Short to Eat Something I Don’t Want

Why? Why do we continue to push turkey and dressing on Thanksgiving every single year? It doesn’t even make sense. It’s not even turkey season in Mississippi. If we can shut down entire oil pipelines, the least we could do is get rid of the traditional Thanksgiving turkey. Around this time last year, I wroteContinue reading “Life Is Too Short to Eat Something I Don’t Want”

Kicking Off November With a Bang

My November attire usually consists of athletic wear and camouflage. Who am I kidding, that’s my year-round attire for the most part. Yet, here I am on the first Tuesday of November, wearing a sport coat and slacks, awaiting the arrival of a man I’ve long admired. Dr. Benjamin Carson is set to speak atContinue reading “Kicking Off November With a Bang”
