WOODS: Keeping the boat business afloat

Tags: boating, John Woods, Ross Barnett Reservoir

Boating is huge national pastime. It’s a huge deal in Mississippi, too. If you doubt that, then take a leisurely cruise across the Ross Barnett Reservoir Dam on a cool, spring or early summer day and checkout the watercraft traffic on the “Rez”. Take a quick exit to one of the big I-55 north lakes […] [...]

OUTDOORS WITH DR. JOHN WOODS: Death of a small outdoors business

Without naming names this is still a story to tell. It’s not about failure or bad business decisions or even poor management. It is more about market forces, constrains on running a small business, underfunded operating capitol, a prevailing “mom and pop” operating philosophy, knock off brands, and watching competitors outright stealing your product ideas […] [...]

Brightly wrapped packages — Dreams and hopes within

At age 61 now, I still marvel at the beauty of a fully decorated Christmas tree. Real trees being best since they can be recycled into fish habitat rather than an attic for fake ones, or a landfill for dead ones, though being ground into flower bed mulch is a pretty good option, too. The […] [...]

If you have never done aromatherapy, then for just a minute join me to play this game. Close your eyes and allow your brain to sensualize these smells; fine finished leather, virgin wool, silk, waxed cotton, oiled walnut, exotic solvents and oils, crisp ironed cotton, British tweed, 100 percent natural rubber, heavy duty khaki, cashmere, […] [...]

I hate it when that happens. Deer camp partner calls last week to give me the bad news. During the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee apparently we had some pretty strong winds blow through Holmes County across our property. It blew the covers off some of our tripod stands and wrecked general havoc knocking down […] [...]

While the debate rages on in various circles around the state including a lot of hunting camps about the population size of white-tailed deer we have in Mississippi, there are no issues with wanting to build better quality deer. I’ve yet to meet a deer hunter that is not interested in taking a bigger buck […] [...]

A great source of personal pride and individual accomplishment is the ownership of private land.  Everyone who owns land either for a revenue-generation source or for a family recreational venue wants to maximize the potential of that property.  Well, just maybe you are not sure exactly what to do in order to achieve the greatest […] [...]
