Above is Jackie Forgarty on opening day of gun season in Georgia. She said her two fellas (son and hubby) took their spots in their tower stand to gun hunt. She, on the other hand, was still wanting to stay faithful to her bow. Never having harvested one with it yet, and on year two of "patiently" waiting for her chance it finally came last Saturday. She shot him at 32.1 yards at 7:21 in the morning. Her first deer with a bow was an 8 point buck! You can't beat that! My congrats to Jackie in our great wild outdoors!
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.
