Well, I'm headed back to Jasper Bottom Hunting Club in Claiborne County this afternoon in hopes of harvesting a deer. This will be it until December 17 and 18 when Kathy can hunt with me again and primitive weapon season last day will be December 15. The following week I will be flying to Fredericksburg, VA, for Christmas to spend a holiday week with my youngest daughter, Suzi, and her family. My mentor and deer friend, Rex, over at Deer Camp Blog, will be posting for me while I'm gone. By the time I get back hopefully, we will be going to his famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club in the MS Delta to hunt in the New Year of 2010! See ya later, GONE HUNTING!
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.
