'Jim's Feed', believe it not if Jim's is open I always stop in and bring friends. he has a snake collection, and a honey bee hive in the feed store. And in spring baby rabbits and chicks. You cannot miss the place because of the big rooster sign on top.
Canoeing the swamp allows you a close up view of the swamp critters. Here are some Nutria or 'Swamp Hare'.
There are several great places to canoe. This is Porters River that goes from Pump Slough then connects with the West Pearl River, it is a days float, with plenty of places to stop and hike.
The West Pearl river is a large body of water sepaprating Louisiana and Mississippi. There are 36,000 acres of protected waterways and swamp.
