Hunting has remained a constant among the premier activities of Jackson County males over the last 185 years. Here, Jack Jimerson (left) and Claude Brown of Swifton display the results of their most recent raccoon hunt. Duck hunting is by far the preferred form of the sport, as so much of the county consists of marshes and rice fields that attract the unwary (and unfortunate) waterfowl. (Courtesy of J.W. Hulen.)
