Today was the LAST day of squirrel season in the State of Mississippi. For the very FIRST time I went on a squirrel hunt and did not see one squirrel dancing a jig on a tree limb. The dogs really tried very hard to tree one for me but maybe they were hiding from me or had been shot at or had run over to the next county knowing I was coming. Hopefully, next time if I start early enough I will get me a squirrel or two or three in our great wild outdoors because it's on my bucket list now!
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.
