Well, just about time to head to Mississippi. I have to work 4 hours in the morning early tomorrow and then I'll be hitting the road for my 5.5 hour drive! Should be able to make it by dinner time and in time to prep for a Friday morning hunt. Owner of the property told me to bring hip waders and he'd put me in an area of the property I'd be sure to see some nice deer! Evidently nobody has been hunting the area due to how wet it's been in there but if I bring hip waders I'll be able to get back in there, time will tell! Planning to hunt Friday thru Wednesday so we'll see, will report back when I return!

I've done that for turkeys before Viking.  Throw on my waders, put my gear in a small kayak and pull it behind me.  Get to the other side, ditch the waders, then hopefully kill a bird and drag him back in the kayak.  Sometimes there's enough water to paddle, sometimes you have to walk a lot of the way.  If it's along a river be careful to understand the river level forecast so you don't get stranded.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I'll be relying on the locals for river information, they know the river well. I'll be keeping track of this most recent rain through my farmlog app too. The good thing is the rain is happening now and it is going to clear out tomorrow. I'll be arriving after a full a day of drying out and won't be going into the wet areas until Saturday at the earliest when the property owner gets there. I'm super excited, should be a good time in the woods regardless of whether I kill something or not!
