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.

Nothing Like Another Snake Story!
You may or may not have seen this in the news this past week about this snake on a windshield. Very creepy!
COLLIERVILLE, TN> A Tennessee family got a surprise from under the hood of their SUV, while driving down an interstate.
Rachel and Tony Fisher noticed a snake pop it's head out of their engine and slither across their windshield, as they drove 65 miles per hour down the highway.
Tony who was in the passenger seat at the time, grabbed his cell phone to get video of the snake, while his wife grabbed tightly to the steering wheel.
It was a very large rat snake.
"I'm looking and watching the road and looking and not believing what is happening," said Rachel.
Eventually the snake did fall off.
It was a relief to the couple who weren't exactly sure how they were going to get it off their SUV. At the time they didn't know if it was poisonous or not.
The Fisher's believe the snake came from a wooded area next to the driveway of relatives home, where they had parked their car the night before.
