This little guy is only 12 years old and is a natural born hunter. His grandmother is a good friend of mine near Cornith, MS and she sent me this picture on MySpace of her grandson, Bret, who harvested his first pintails. She said he has killed more deer and ducks than most men. He loves it! His Dad, Franz, took him hunting on January 23rd at a duck camp in the MS Delta. Here is Bret with his mighty ducks in our great wild outdoors! My congrats to Bret, a true sportsman!
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.
