A friend and former classmate of mine, Anita, told me last week at our sorority meeting that her grandson, Rob Shingleton shot a deer. I requested a photo of him and above is Rob with his father, Dr. Bruce Shingleton and the deer he killed. The deer was shot on December 27 outside of Amarillo, TX. It had 7 points and weighed 125 lbs. Rob and his father also went to Amarillo earlier this past year on an antelope hunt. They were able to harvest two antelopes. My congrats to Rob in harvesting his buck in our great wild outdoors and to his Dad. A very proud father and a very happy son!
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.
