Susan James of Washington, MS, harvested this fine buck in Adams County after Thanksgiving. Susan said it was the biggest buck she has ever killed and he scored 160 6/8. Washington is an unincorporated community and close to Natchez along the lower Mississippi River. Susan is a Mother of two daughters and I'm very proud of her accomplishment and of course bringing home the meat. My congratulations to her 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.
