The Rogue Huntress par excellence!
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.

The Rogue Huntress
The WhiteTailed Doe. Laura went on her first hunting trip three years ago as an observer and the next fall she went rifle hunting. She harvested three deer and was hooked. She said she received archery lessons as a gift for Christmas that same year and in the following fall of 2009 she hunted with her new bow. Since it was a warm season she did not get a deer. She is looking forward to this season in getting the buck she has been watching. She even bought her a new deer stand and was looking forward to this hunting season and have everything set up in time. But her luck changed when her hunting friend was assaulted and badly injured and will take months for him to recover. She is still trying to get her stand set up and find a good spot to hunt in time. I do hope things will work out for Laura and that she will find someone to help her since archery season opens August 30 and black bear on the 25th. Go over and wish her good luck and I'm going to encourage her to join our Outdoor Bloggers Summit so she can get a good support team going in her favor in our great wild outdoors.
