ACKERMAN, Miss. — For most outdoorsmen in Mississippi, the word “camp” means one thing: deer camp.

“My daddy really started it back in the ’60s,” said Lynn Yates of Philadelphia. “I was about 17 or 18.”

“Daddy started going at the Pearl River swamp. He’d go in a wagon with a mule when he was young,” said Yates. “That was before we were born, back in the ’30s and ’40s.”
