Taft Nesmith bagged this turkey, his first, while hunting with his father Scott Nesmith in Claiborne County in March. The turkey weighed 18 pounds and had a 10 1/2-inch beard with 1-inch spurs. Taft is the 11-years-of son of Scott and Lisa Nesmith.
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.
