Mama Hunter, Amy, is shown here with her first deer she shot with her new bow in 2010. She lives in Minnesota and her blog is about her journey on running a household, climbing the corporate ladder and tree stand all in one day! She is married to her hunter husband, Tim, and they have a little boy, Andrew, and two dogs!
When she was younger there was nothing more exciting to her than waking up her Dad at 4:00 a.m. to go hunting together. Then the teenage years came and went and finally she met her husband-to-be and he was a hunter! She spent many hours with him in tree stands and blinds before she picked up a shotgun again. When she shot her first turkey she had just found out that she was 10 weeks pregnant. I want to congratulate Amy on her first deer, turkey and her new blog. I'm looking forward to this hunting season and reading all about her adventures 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.
