First time I have hunted this old farm in about 22+ years. Didnt find any birds or I would have posted in small game instead. It used to hold a covey or two of birds. When I was 17-18, I could find them even without a dog. It was abandoned at that time but cattle grazing kept it huntable.Also used to sneak up on woodies on a creek that runs around this farm.Our experts say that as the small farm has dissappeared, so goes the Quail population, and in some cases(not all ) that is somewhat true.



I was told this was a school at one time, then moved about 400 yards and used as a house in about 1940. Buzzards(excuse me, turkey vultures, dont want to offend someone) seem to like to perch on top of it.



This is about 2 miles away at another old farm. I think Bonnie and Clyde ditched this one here.

This is where the house sat when it was a school house.



Peirs for an old swinging bridge across Brush Creek(Perry County) that was next to the old school.



Second Peir across creek.

Huge Sweet Gum by the old school house place. If this thing could only talk, what stories it might tell.It reminds me of the big Sweet Gum tree that John climbed bare footed, when he thought he was poking a **** out of it and it turned out to be a Lynx:thumb: One of Jerry Clowers more famous stories.:smack:

Since buzzard is widely used it's accepted as a name for turkey vultures and black vultures. Shouldn't offend anyone but the most hard core ornithologists.:wink:

Nice pics.

Located due south of Nimrod lake, about 2 miles.On forest service road 146 and then on a side road, near Brush Creek. Only a narrow 4x4 road is left to get to it now. There were other one room schools in the area also.

Nice pictures. Gotta love those Ledbetter boys.

Of course! Odell was always the smart one. Only took him 2 weeks to put together a jigsaw puzzle......even though the box said 4-7 years.
