Thinking About Summertime

Summertime. What special meaning does it have for you? What thoughts and memories are triggered when you think about that three month span of time when the “living is easy and the cotton is high”?

To most of us, it’s trying to find a place to keep cool, getting outside work done early so as to avoid the penetrating heat of the summer sun. In my childhood days, though, it was a different story.

Summertime meant a three-month reprieve from sitting in a classroom and having to do homework. I’d count the days off during May, days that passed at the same snail’s pace as those last days before Christmas. When the school bell rang for the last time that school year, what an exciting time that was.

Under Utilized Gems in Lincoln Parish

It sometimes amazes me how some things are taken for granted. You know they’re there; you drive by them everyday but you’re headed some-where else and it never crosses your mind to stop by.

 

Lincoln Parish is home to atleast two of those entities that we know are there but most of us fail to visit. Lincoln Parish Park is located in the beautiful tree-studded hills just north of Ruston. Granted, the local community is generally supporting this mecca in the pines but if you check license plates of visitors to the park, most are from other states. Bike trails, hiking trails, a beautiful lake for fishing and swimming, picnic areas and overnight camp sites are there for a modest fee for families to enjoy

New Weapon Against Feral Pigs

Ron and Tes Jolly operate a farm in east-central Alabama. Tes is a nationally-known wildlife photographer while Ron works for the state of Alabama and is an award winning outdoors writer.

I read an article by Ron in the July-August issue of Turkey Country magazine, published by the National Wild Turkey Federation. This article hit home because the problems the Jolly’s are having on their Alabama farm mimics the problems land owners, hunting lease members and the general public are also having here in Louisiana.

“Ten years ago,” Jolly writes, “feral hog sightings were a novelty on our east-central Alabama farm. A decade later, he points out, he would be in an all-out war to preserve his farm’s water resources, habitat and food plots he had worked so hard to manage and establish, habitat and resources the hogs were destroying.

Don’t Disturb Deer Fawn

Though they may appear to be vulnerable and in need of assistance, unattended white-tailed deer fawns encountered in the wild should not be disturbed, according to Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries’ (LDWF) biologists. LDWF is reminding the public the best practice is to leave them alone and to remember it is against the law to capture young deer or any other wild animal.

Newborn fawns rely on their spotted coats and concealment during the first few weeks of life. Does will forage nearby and return periodically to nurse the young fawn. The lack of flight and hiding strategy phase of a newborn fawn often creates the illusion of abandonment. However, as fawns grow and develop, they will begin to forage for food alongside the mother.

Brady Johnson and Daniel Martin

Brady Johnson, age 11, and Daniel Martin, age 10, got the surprise of their young lives two weeks ago. Their Poppy and Gran, Wayne and Judy Harlan, surprised them with tickets to Omaha, Nebraska for Game 2 of the Men’s College World Series, LSU vs. Florida State. Brady and Daniel were the first fans to form a line to welcome the LSU Tigers to the TD Ameritrade Park. They held their signs and got high fives from all of the players and coaching staff. They were amazed at the size of the ballpark and how many LSU fans traveled to Omaha. Sporting their brand new souvenir ballcaps, bought earlier in the day, they watched the game intently and enjoyed some ballpark food favorites. A foul ball landed two rows in front of them and they both had their arms stretched as far as possible trying to catch it. After the WIN they joined other LSU fans to send the Tigers off to rest up for the next game.

Firearms Expo a “Blast”

Based in Columbia, SC, Palmetto State Armory is on a mission to assist people, especially in metropolitan areas, to be able to experience the thrill found in hunting, sport shooting and competitive shooting. The organization has scheduled firearms and education expos later this year in places like New York, Chicago and Washington DC.

How was it possible for this organization to agree to come to a remote area of Lincoln Parish to host such an event? Enter NBA All-star basketball legend, Karl Malone who began talks with the folks at Palmetto about hosting an event in the local area, citing his love for the outdoors, shooting and hunting.

The company agreed and joined forces with other organizations such as Nine-Line Apparel, Glock firearms along with representatives of the Lincoln and Union Parishes sheriff’s department. The Firearms and Education Expo was held Saturday, June 3 at the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office Rifle Range near Simsboro.

Bream Fishing A LifeTime Pursuit

Recently, I was driving over some old familiar territory, Highway 156 between Creston and Goldonna. A couple of miles out of Creston, there is a high hill but before the hill, there is an area where the road dips low for a few hundred yards.

I slowed as I hit the low area, remembering a time when as a boy, this stretch of road, now paved but then gravel, would be covered in spring from high water as nearby Black Lake overflowed.

Dad would gather fishing poles, instruct my brother and me to head for the cow barn, shovel and Prince Albert cans in hand, to dig among the cow patties for big red earthworms. Once the cans were filled, dad loaded us up in the car, fishing poles protruding from rear windows for a trip to that stretch of highway. Dad knew that in spring when the lake overflows and covers the road, the bream would follow the rising water and they’d be there on the road bed by the thousands.
