This Week at the Rez

From the PRVWSD:

·        Hunter walks up on big buck
Kiel Higginbotham of Brandon saw his investment in a draw hunt at Barnett Reservoir pay big dividends when he killed a 255-pound, 8-point on the Madison County side of the spillway. How he killed it is hard to believe. Read the story here, http://www.ms-sportsman.com/details.php?id=3386
 
·        Catfish bite in the cold
Ever wonder why you see so many fishermen bundled up in seemingly every piece of clothes they can find, sitting on the banks of Barnett Reservoir with an array of long surf-casting rods standing in rod holders? It's simple. Some of the best bank-fishing opportunities of the year come on the coldest days. It's a result of shad being caught in the shallows and dying in the cold water. Catfish come in for the easy feast, and opportunistic — and hardy — fishermen come out hoping to get one, too.

·        Keep it Clean, Keep it Green & Keep it Safe!  Community Fair to be held November 22nd

      A Lowe’s Community Partners grant will provide funding for the Reservoir’s First Community Fair, “Keep it Green, Keep it Clean & Keep it Safe,” November 22 at the Reservoir’s Community Center on Spillway Road in Brandon from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The fair is a free event with information on horticultural tips, crime prevention, composting, a plant swap, a native plant walk through the Botanical Gardens, and E-Cycling (electronics recycling provided by Magnolia Data Solutions) and more. Focusing on beautification, Keep the Reservoir Beautiful will be providing free tulip and daffodil bulbs to neighborhoods and churches to help beautify the Reservoir area.   For more information visit: www.keeptherezbeautiful.org
