Mark Kovacs 5-year-old son, Trevor, reeled in all by himself his very first large-mouth bass yesterday. Last week he got his first trout and was ready to go back fishing. Mark said that his little buddy made his Daddy proud and was a priceless moment for him. He said he cast, set hook and reeled in without any help. The water was very dirty so he gave him a power worm and he hooked a beauty for a first bass. My congrats to this young fisherman in our great wild and wonderful outdoors. Way to go, Trevor!
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.
