I really enjoy hunting from the Arrowhead stand and it's one of my favorites. I have seen a lot of deer and also a bobcat at this site. This past November, I got a 120lb. doe at 85 yards and dropped her in her tracks! Last Saturday was a beautiful afternoon to hunt and a hog was taken from this stand around 6:30 that morning. Dean said their was two that came out and he got one of them. I have heard them from the right of the stand down a steep embankment but never seen one. For about two hours I kept hearing this noise and in my mind, I'm thinking, a BIG OLD BOAR HOG is making it's way up the hill so I can shoot it! Come to find out, after all the excitement and anticipation, it turned out to be a freaking Armadillo! It really kept me on my toes for that length of time. Oh well, I know there is one at the famous Christmas Place with my name on it. It's just a matter of time!
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.
