Mike Schmid near Sundance, WY, had a great hunt at the beginning of the week with 67 year old Linda Houston of Tennessee. She has hunted with us for the last 4 years and this little lady has more grit than most guys I have hunted with. Day 1 was a full 14 hours in the field complete with hiking and belly crawling but no turkey. We roosted a bird that night, set up on him the next morning and 3 hours later she killed one of 5 turkeys we had gobbling. She is a trooper and a joy to have in camp.
Let's hear it for the GIRLS!! (Mike Schmid is owner at Solitude Ranch and Outfitters)
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.
