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.

Bear Food Drive
A six-foot bear wheels away 500-pound restaurant dumpster in Colorado! You go Bear!
As the story goes a hungry bear helped himself to a takeout dinner at a German restaurant in Colorado Springs.
The manager of Edelweiss said the bear passed by a recycling bin and followed his nose to a dumpster holding leftovers from the previous night.
Surveillance video shows the bear on his hind legs, flipping open dumpsters lid and nimbly rolling it out of a view into the parking lot to enjoy his feast.
The container was later found knocked over. The bear returned for more early the next morning.
Wildlife officials say if the bear keeps coming back, it will be tagged and relocated to the mountains - - or euthanize if that doesn't work.
