John Kirk, my Godchild, sent me a picture with a nice buck that he bagged recently. He said that the monster Kansas whitetail scored 155-1/2 and had 11 scoreable points. He also wrote that he was in the perfect set up and was patient and really loves it when a plan comes together. I'm so proud of Kirk not only of his hunting abilities but the fact that he is an Assistant Professor at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. Recently he and his wife, Melissa, had their first child, a boy, Kaleb. Looking forward to seeing him, his wife and newborn son for the first time during the Christmas holidays. My congrats to John Kirk on his fine harvest in our great wild outdoors!
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.
