Delectable CollectiblesWritten by C.L.Hanna
What causes us to become collectors?
For some of us, it's as simple as finally being able to afford to have that certain thing that, as a child, we always wanted but were unable to attain due to a lack of finances. Perhaps we dreamed of it, longed for it, and hoped for it so much, that now, as adults having money to buy it...we simply can't get enough of it! For my mother-in-law it was dolls. Now, in her seventies she has many dolls! Some she has purchased for herself, but most have been gifts from those who have known that she loved them as a girl, yet never had one of her very own. The variety of dolls she now has, adorn her bedroom and give her great pleasure...a testimony to fact that it's never too late to begin a collection.
While some collections hold purely sentimental value, others are strictly monetary.
One relative has had quite a collection of precious and semi-precious stones over years and because of their worth, has had to hide them at times. It's hard to enjoy a collection that has to be hidden under lock and key...but netting a handsome profit at resale can be more than satisfying for some collectors. My grandfather collected guns. He was a gun-smith and could make or restore almost any type of rifle. I now have one of those rifles from his carefully guarded but precious collection. He had it because he loved guns - I have it because I loved him.
No matter what it is...there is probably someone who collects it.

Well first new video is almost ready. We have all of our deer hunting footage recorded and ready for release. We anticipate a late spring or early summer release. The turkey season is last part of filming that is required. Join Marty Anthony, Jamie Honeycutt, and John Hollingsworth in our upcoming video. We are Mississippi Outdoor Adventures.
We look forward to best turkey season in years. We have seen more turkeys this year than ever before. I saw flocks almost every day of deer season with 20-40 turkeys, including some great big gobblers. Just other day I saw an albino gobbler. I personally am looking forward to taking my first turkey with a bow this year. We look forward to Missississippi’s up coming youth weekend starting March 15th and 16th when I intend to take my two cousins hunting. They have never been turkey hunting but during deer season they both saw turkeys everywhere.
The 2002-2003 video, will be first full length project we have published at Mississippi Outdoor Adventures. The tape promises to be one of best hunting video series shot on location in Great State of Mississippi. All of our primary hunts are filmed in Mississippi, with exception of a few trips to nearby states. We do all of our own production and editing to help maintain feeling of realy being there. We are just regular people that hunt and video. For this seasons tape I have a great shot on a management hunt in Alabama without a cameraman. We also have a great bow kill that Jamie made, a great feat in itself. In upcoming video I think we enjoyed duck hunt most. You will join Jamie and I on a late season duck trip in north Mississippi. We are thigh deep in water entire time, no pit blinds for us. We both had a great time and our guides were best. Otis steals show. He is our guides retriever or should I say sometimes retriever. Otis had a real problem with water first day, but was much improved by second day. This is truly one of funniest parts of video. You will also join Jamie and John on an awesome rifle hunt in south Mississippi. You will not believe deer that they pass up.
