WOODS: Keeping the boat business afloat

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”.

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.

Mississippi standing by Millennium

It blew the covers off some of our tripod stands and wrecked general havoc knocking down limbs across ATV trails. That ...

Start a spring seed program

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 with a larger antler rack ...

Private lands program

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 potential from your land.   ...
