A Mississippi man, Jonathan Toth, caught a strange looking fish in the Steele Bayou north of my hometown of Vicksburg, MS. It appears to be an albino bighead carp. Toth was bow fishing on the bayou when he made the catch on June 7th. He said he normally fishes for alligator gar, and was surprised when he pulled this fish out of the water. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, bighead carp are an invasive species.
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.
