David Bicket of Diamondhead, Mississippi is so excited about his deer mount getting close to being done. He said the old wise buck outsmarted him for three years, but he finally got him the first week of February. He killed him in a wildlife management area with a primitive weapon. In two weeks he will be ready for pickup and will proudly place his deer mount in a special spot in his home. Congratulations to David for hanging in there and outsmarting this wise old deer in our great wild and wonderful 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.
