The Matthew Bellamy Project… A Tragedy leads to this Amazing Cause

Gun Safety is above all, the most important aspect of owning a gun, especially when it comes to protecting our children. I would love to share this cause with my fellow gun owners. This very worthwhile project promotes gun safety through education and offers many other events to bring the Bellamy Family’s message of gun accident prevention  to as many people as possible. Please take a minute to visit this web site and please get involved.   TheMatthewBellamyProject (MBP) is a gun safety organization committed to preventing unintentional firearm deaths by providing free gun locks and firearm safety classes. Our Mission Our family owns guns and respects the rights of others to do so. However, in spite of the fact that we keep our guns locked in a safe where children cannot access them, we lost a child due to an unsecured gun. Out of our heartache, we share our story: Encouraging adults to be responsible for the proper unloading and storage of firearms. Encouraging adults to educate children about gun safety and the proper handling of firearms. Urging parents to ask: “Are there unsecured firearms where my children play”?

What’s Shakin – What’s Biting in Murrells Inlet?  fishing report.

What’s Shakin – What’s Biting in Murrells Inlet? fishing report.

What’s shakin – what’s biting in Murrells Inlet? The thunder of Harley’s is all about us in Murrells Inlet for the annual spring motorcycle rally with record attendance expected this beautiful week in May.  But fishing is what draws residents and visitors alike to our beautiful waters all year round!  What’s biting???  I stopped by and asked Jessica for an update and here is her report: Keeper Flounder,  slot sized Redfish and Black drum reports are coming in.  Blues and Whitings are running the beaches as well as Spanish Mackerel and a few nice sized Pompano. Sheepshead and bull Redfish reports are coming in from the jetties in Murrells Inlet and Georgetown, especially. The three mile reef has reports with summer trout, small King Mackerel and Weakfish in addition to Spanish and a few Cobia.  A lot of guys bait ball fishing for them on the days the Menhaden are there (running the beaches).  It’s the only time of year guys with smaller boats have access to these fish.  Guys are ripping lures or bulk tails with live eels (now available at Perry’s)/squid or eel type simulators.  Larger King Mackerel out at Belkie Bear (a reef about 12 miles out).  A large number of Mahi, with Wahoo, and Blackfin mixed in for guys fishing the Gulf Stream. Boy if that does not get you excited….. If you are not fishing or riding your Harley, there is plenty more to do on our famous Marshwalk … but bring an appetite for great seafood and plenty of entertainment. Be sure to call Jessica at Perry’s Bait and Tackle -(843) 651-2895 with any questions you have and to get that fresh bait that will make your fishing trip a fun and successful journey Share this:FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogleRedditLike this:Like...

Guest Blog: Carman Brown Meets “Mr. Tom”!!!!

Guest Blog: Carman Brown Meets “Mr. Tom”!!!!

  In 2000, I started dating Tommy Brown, who is by far the greatest turkey hunter that I know. Tommy is an extreme hunter, woodsman & naturalist, as well as a fine Southern Gentleman. When turkey season came around, he invited me to go turkey hunting with him. I was only a spectator but my first turkey hunting experience is still very vivid to me and one of my most cherished times in the woods. We went into the deep swamp before dawn and Tommy did a Barred Owl call & a gobbler gobbled right back at him. The turkey’s gobble, which I had never heard before, sounded like nearby thunder. We sat down on our stools and got into position. As Tommy was getting organized with his calls, I watched a baby squirrel playing 5 feet in front of me. I had the sense something was watching me and looked up into a tree about 10 feet to my right where I saw a Great Horned Owl staring at the baby squirrel. I sat extremely still with amazement. Then the owl soared down, grabbed the small squirrel with his talons took it back to the limb on which he had been perched and threw the squirrel back like a thirsty cowboy doing a shot of liquor in a saloon. The owl spun his head and peered at me like “You are next!” About the time the owl flew away, the gobbling started again, yet this time it was much closer and literally made the ground tremble! There he was, the most amazing bird I had ever seen with a brilliant red, white and blue head. And as I was admiring all his splendor as he strutted and gobbled out in front of us he quickly met his demise. I WAS SOLD ON THIS TURKEY HUNTING THING! Without ever shooting a gun, I felt as though I was obsessed with wild turkey hunting. A week later I started learning to shoot a shotgun with a turkey drawn on a piece of plywood in the yard. I bagged my first bird days later. We hunt in the deep swamp surrounded by cypress and tupelo trees. And every spring I find myself venturing into areas that I cannot fathom that I am exploring. Tommy is an amazing hunter, more adventurous than I sometimes like, walking us a half a mile or more into what I feel confident is a moccasin-infested area. I pray along the way as I wear my snake boots asking the Lord to keep the serpents away from us & us out of all danger. Yet, each time...

A Place Where you want your Kids to go Wild!!!

A Place Where you want your Kids to go Wild!!!

Wildlife Action Adventure Camps is just that place. My husband and I were lucky enough to take a tour of the Headquarters in Mullins, SC and I can tell you I wished I was a child again!  A distinctive Pioneer theme dominates the authentic grounds and you feel like you are back in time!   We were so impressed, we decided to become sponsors so that some deserving youngsters could enjoy a week at this amazing camp.  The rustic campground has everything a young person could dream of -all centered around the conservation and preservation of the beautiful outdoor environment and all that it has to offer.  Here is a glimpse of what the campers will experience at WLA: Fishing, swimming, and canoeing are favorites of many of the campers whom are referred to as Pioneers! But there is so much more.  This camp emphasizes outdoor eduction and every activity promotes awareness about the wildlife habitat and educating campers on the stewardship of the good earth.                                                          Camp would not be camp if there were not opportunities to learn about snakes!!  Horseback riding,  archery, gun safety, and skeet shooting (age appropriate) are all apart of the outdoor experience led by skilled and experienced instructors.  This camp is all about passing on to the next generation the 5 point laws for WLA:  education, values of preservation, conservation, sportsmanship, and fellowship.     I met campers who live for this camp each year and we have also met some that became counselors.  Learning about the delicate balance of nature through exploring the woods,  and planting trees and gardens and giving thanks for the natural resources we have.   Day camps are available for ages 6-11 starting in June and Overnight camps for ages 9-14 are available in July.  Please check out Wildlife Action Camp and get your pioneer away from their computer and off the couch and go this amazing camp . “Putting back more than we take!”    Share this:FacebookTwitterPinterestGoogleRedditLike this:Like...
