Deer Hunter in the Fog, Behind Mississippi River Levee
Early morning deer hunting behind the River Levee often starts with a foggy morning. Milton Jenkins is walking the trail looking for signs of deer.<br/><br/>
In 1902 while on a hunting expedition in Sharkey County, President Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt refused to shoot a captured bear. This act resulted in the creation of the world-famous teddy bear. While on a hunting expedition with Mississippi Governor Andrew Longino near Onward in November of 1902, President Theodore Roosevelt refused to shoot a bear that had been captured and tied to a tree. Afterward, a satirical cartoon of the event was published, inspiring a Brooklyn candy shop owner to create a stuffed “Teddy’s Bear.”
