For Greg, my step-son's 42nd Birthday today, I wanted to post one of his trophy 8-point bucks that was taken south of Vicksburg, near Carpenter, MS in December 2000. He was the guest of a hunting buddy/friend, Billy Boykin and used his in-line muzzle loader. It weighed 255 lbs. and the antlers had an inside spread of 25 inches. This buck scored 131 on the Boone and Crockett. Your Dad and I want wish you a very Happy 42st Birthday today and may you have many more to come. We love you!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.
