It was a beautiful morning at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club in the MS Delta. Bob and I hunted for hogs while Paul (Rex's brother) took Ethan to the Indian Mound Stand to get a deer. As the sun came up, all of a sudden deer start appearing as I zoomed in to captured the photos above. Actually, more came out and little yearlings were running and jumping about. In the background is The Point (tripod) Stand which I have hunted out of before. Dew was on the grass as the sun came up and was glistening in the morning sun. It's nothing like being in the woods to see all Gods creatures come alive with the birds singing a wakeup call.
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.
