My youngest grandson, Ethan, far rear right, standing in front of a plane during a field trip with his friends. He is a Junior at Raymond High School and has been in the Jr. ROTC since he was a Freshman. He wants to go into the Marines when he graduates. Ethan is also a deer hunter and recently harvested his first deer (doe) on his paternal grandparents property near Jackson, MS. I will be posting pictures as soon as I can get them. We have hunted together at my deer camp in Claiborne County but unfortunately never harvested a deer but got the experience of being in the woods and enjoying nature. Ethan is a good student and grandson and I'm so proud of him and his accomplishments and know he will go far in life.
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.
