This has been floating around the Internet in case you have not see it yet. Allegedly it was killed in a swamp land along the river in lower Claiborne County or just into Jefferson County, Mississippi. Not sure where the picture was taken. The snake is an Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, Crotalus adamanteus. It is said to be 8-1/2 feet (2.6 meters) long and had 21 rattles.
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.
