Today is my hunting friend and mentor, Rex Howell's 58th birthday. He's the editor and roving reporter of the Deer Camp Blog which is an outdoor column of The Bodock Times (a satirical periodical) with humor and hunting at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the MS Delta.
I took this picture of Rex at his "50" Birthday Party bash in Water Valley, MS, wearing his birthday hat. Eight years has flown by so fast and I'm wishing my friend a very Happy 58th Birthday and many more returns of the day! May God Bless You!
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.
