Jim Crews has been hunting amid ancient Mississippi cypress for 5 decades, forgetting neither his first hunt nor his first duck. Having recently published his must-read duck hunting memoir Amid the Cypress, that describes memorable ducks hunts in Mississippi and far beyond, Crews and Ramsey recall times shared in cypress-studded north Mississippi Delta oxbows. What compelled Crews to write a duck hunting book? Why was Bobo Brake the apropos setting for duck hunting with Ramsey’s heirloom Colt hammer-gun? Does he recommend squeezing in a duck hunt before a wedding? How did some infamous duck hole names, like Propellor Hole, originate? What kinds of duck decoys might Crews be hunting over on any given day and why does it matter – or does it? Why does practical, old-school duck hunting styles resonate with him? How’d he end up hosting a couple Maltese hunters? Did cleaning his trusty two-shooter killing stick pass the muster in Scotland? Like gadwalls filtering intermittently into cypress timber on a blue-bird morning, this conversation between buddies is the perfect pace.
