My Facebook friend, Steve Buckee Kane, took this picture in his neighbor's yard of this doe who is always laying down near a fence beside some old tires to sleep. He named the deer "Tired" but then someone came up with a better name of "Re-tired" which Steve said was more appropriate. He commented that she was an old dry doe who never had a fawn this year, so that name is perfect for her!
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.
