A deer hunter in training, Dakota Hutcherson of Biloxi, Mississippi, said it took him three years but he finally got his first deer. He had four bucks to walk out on a tree branch that they were rubbing down. He decided to take the biggest of the group. What's so impressive...he was using his buddy's bow! Dakota was so excited and happy that he was able to get a chance on his very first buck in our great wild Mississippi outdoors! Congratulations, Dakota!
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.
