Above is my favorite place to hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the Mississippi Delta. This stand is called the Arrowhead Stand. With deer season already in progress, it's sad to say I'm shot out and will be having surgery in the morning on my rt. rotator cuff. Maybe later on I can take my camera and get behind a ground blind...just so I'm in the woods enjoying nature. Not sure how I will be able to post with my arm in a sling for approximately three weeks. Hopefully, I will have a speedy recovery and be back posting on my blog before long. GOODHUNTING to all and please be safe and have a prosperous hunting season!
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.
