“Play outside, nap often, stretch upon rising, and don’t eat frogs.” – Madison Jones

C71When you first land on the home page of Madison, Mississippi’s Circle of Seven you will certainly question why I fell in love with the place. Why? Well, because you will likely note the guns and think they are purveyors of such things. Well, they are. But they are also the stop for all sorts of luxury items for the classic gentleman outdoorsman…

“Wild caught Florida ‘gator and Spanish Cedar. Removable dividers inside can move over for the big boys or be removed (for a small Purdey flask) altogether. Colors do vary a little. Made in USA.”

Circle Seven also offers Quail Hunts which just sounds like great fun (save for the hunting part): “Circle 7 invites you to enjoy incomparable experiences at Prairie Wildlife, located in the middle of Mississippi’s Black Prairie.
