When you hear “Phfffffftt,” you know a strutting tom is close and it is time to get ready.
|Are you ‘coyoted-up?’
April 15 at 9:00 am
At the recent meeting of the Southeast Deer Study Group in South Carolina, the talk among the deer researchers and biologists continued to focus on coyotes and fawn depredation, the lack of fawn recruitment in various herds and the continuing spread of CWD in this country.
|Time to do the math
March 13 at 9:00 am
The deer season is over, and it is now time to measure the antlers and recognize the trophy-class bucks, along with looking at the deer harvest data and determining what has been accomplished with your deer management program.

The work that has been done the past two years will determine one’s hunting success in the upcoming turkey season.
|This is the harvest season

The holidays have come and gone, and hopefully you enjoyed these special times with family and friends.
My parents are no longer alive, but I remember well these holiday times growing up in Northwest Louisiana. Later, as my brother, sister and I married, Mom and Dad really enjoyed the holiday season with their six grandkids, and Mom was blessed to see three of her great grandchildren during her last three Christmases.
|Keeping an eye on the 2012 rut
December 10, 2012 at 9:00 am
Observations of deer and deer activity during the months of September and October indicate the rut is on schedule; now we need Mother Nature to do her part with some cold weather.
|Pig mania continues in Clinton
November 19, 2012 at 9:00 am
Just when we thought it was time to focus on the 2012 deer season, the pigs decide to keep playing the game.
During the month of July the feral hogs were quite active at Camp David and began coming to the bait sites on a daily basis. I made preparations to shoot them during their daylight visits and at night under the solar lights.
|Finding out who your friends are
October 08, 2012 at 9:00 am
We know that when the storms of life hit Mother Nature can put the outdoors back in order, but we need our friends to help us get going again.
|A new season but the game is the same
September 10, 2012 at 8:00 am
If you didn’t like the 2011 deer season you probably will not like the 2012 season.
My wife and I spent the last week of July on the property at Camp David. It rained one afternoon and around 6 p.m. I made a round looking for the wild and elusive feral hog. I had killed five already and was looking for more pork for the freezer, but they did not want to come out and play. I deliberately walked the edge of a new plot I had planted with some late peas, sunflowers and sorghum looking for tracks but found none.
|Going hog wild
August 13, 2012 at 10:00 am
I mentioned last month that the hogs were finally beginning to show up at the bait sites and I was making plans to put some pork in the freezer.
|What have you done for wildlife today?
July 09, 2012 at 7:00 am
When I went to work for the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries way back in 1976, the late Dewey Wills was assistant chief of the Game Division (now the Wildlife Division). Dewey was responsible for the land purchasing program for the department and was involved with the purchase of many of the wildlife management areas that we are so familiar with.
|It’s not time to leave the woods and go fishing just yet
June 28, 2012 at 11:00 am
Hunting success comes from planning ahead.
Even though the 2012 turkey season has ended and the 2012 deer season is months away, it is not time to leave the woods and go fishing; there is plenty of work to do to get the habitat in shape for the new turkey poults and for the upcoming deer season.
