Joe Clark of Paulding, OH, took his 7 years old nephew river fishing for his first time and he caught the first one of the night. Only 6 pounds but it was plenty for him and he loved it. What an epic look on his face! My congrats to this young fellow and may he have many more fishing trips to come. Way to go in our great wild and wonderful outdoors!
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.
