Can't believe all the wildlife I saw including deer, turkey, bald eagles, ducks of all sorts, a bobcat and I'm told golden are using the area this time year too.

Very few places exist where you can get away from it all and commune with nature. The Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge is one such place. Every third Saturday from April to October, they offer free canoeing and kayaking. Don't worry the gators are quite shy....More
