I saw this picture on Facebook and had to share it with you. I can almost feel the blowing cold in the air and love the hunter up in the tree/deer stand. Imagine having deer watching you and you look down and see an awesome buck like that! I have been there at one time when I had about five does starring me down while a big buck was in the area at Brown's Point on Kings Point Island. At the time I did not know that I could aim for the neck and that was the only shot I had. It may have been a 15 pointer. It was huge. Never will I forget that day as long as I live and what if I had made that one shot! Since then I have put several deer down with one shot to the neck and dropped them in their tracks!
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.
