Bob and I have been invited up to the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club for the last weekend of gun season. We are looking forward to visiting with Rex (my friend/mentor) and his family and friends. We hope to harvest a deer or two and maybe a hog. Mark (mailrider) and Tony (two-gun) will be there. It will be good to see them again. Should be a lot of "SHOOTIN" going on this weekend in the MS Delta! 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.
