Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.
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.
This afternoon I took off and went down to my granddaughter and her husband's land to hunt south of town. The temps were in the mid-40's and got on my stand around 3:15. It has been awhile since I have had a chance to go hunting and was glad to get out of the house to go. Only saw two yearlings walk out between 5:10 and 5:15 and enjoyed watching them. Also, the owls, squirrels playing and barking and the birds singing their hearts out. I also had a small stream running by my stand and was nice to hear the water trickling along. An 8 point and a couple of does have been taken off of this stand this season. Our hunting season will be over with by the end of January 2013. My husband and I have been invited to hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club with my blogging friend/mentor and his family soon. We are looking forward to our hunting trip and hopefully harvest a deer and maybe a hog or two. Below are a few pictures I took while on my stand today.
Yearlings came out at the far end of the road and walked from left to right..
