Noel Cain was hunting in Copiah County when he shot his .45-70 and killed a 12-point buck. He searched the blood trail for an hour with no luck and walked back to his house for help. He took his four wheeler and his 10 month old German Sheppard, not thinking she would help. She picked up the blood trail that he lost and went straight to him! He loves his dog and will need to give her extra milk bones, maybe a steak or a deer leg! Congratulations to Noel on a very fine buck in our great wild Mississippi 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.
