Feathers Finally Fly

Turkey Trot, MS> Feathers finally flew at the famous Christmas Place this past weekend as Michael Howell finally got a big gobbler. His father, Paul Loser Howell, may have helped a little bit with the calling. This large bird had a 9 and 7/8 inch beard and weighed 17 lbs. An old bird, it had 1 and 1/4 inch spurs and was a real limb hanger. This turkey was taken near the Voting Log Stand. Congratulations to Michael on a fine turkey. Here is a pic of Michael and Spencer with the turkey hanging on a limb.

It was a great Easter weekend with all the family coming in to visit. Burney cooked a wild hog and I think it was the best ever. Michael, Spencer, Dad, Hillary and Burney all caught crappie that afternoon and we cooked those too!



Sadie made a big salad for dinner, to top the meal off and we ate like kings.
The next morning we hunted and Spencer and I heard turkeys but they would not come in. Then we headed to Church in the little town of Eden and got a good dose of down home religion.

That afternoon we headed home and Spencer got a pic of this damn water-gator up the road from our place. Hmmm... I think I have something for that awful thing.
I can assure you that it needs to make sure it doesn't decide to mosey up to our lake.
All in all, a great family Easter that we shared together.

I knew there were swampy things there.

Looks like a good time and glad to hear you all had a wonderful Easter.

Hey, great gobbler. Southern boys are tough - not sure I'd be comfortable hunting in gator infested areas.
