My dear friend, Holly, (NorCal Cazadora), harvested her first deer shown in the picture above this past weekend. Holly lives in Northern California and is a recovering newspaper reporter and editor who now teaches journalism at her alma mater, Sacramento State. She went on her first hunt at age 41 and immediately fell in love with the honesty, grace and humility of acquiring food the hard way. You have to read her exciting hunting story and congratulate her on her first deer. I'm so proud of her! My congrats again Holly! Charming, Just Charming!
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.
