Brad Young, a Mississippi Department
of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks (MDWFP) bear biologist, is holding a bear cub in the MS Delta while on a field study yesterday. The mother was at a safe distance so the staff could perform tests and take measurements. The cub was then returned quickly and safely to its mother. The bears were located in Bolivar County near the Mississippi River. Check out those baby bear claws and the video of the bear by clicking on their website above.
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.
