In my post this past Wednesday while turkey hunting, I mentioned about a loud crashing noise behind me of something coming down the hill and thought it was a herd of deer. I watched from my stand as a coyote was chasing a rabbit. Well, forgot to tell you that I saw the rabbit Friday, near the area, hopping around from where it all ended with mud and leaves flying everywhere. The coyote just stood there wondering what happened to the rabbit! I know now that he intentionally headed that way because his home (rabbit hole) was there and he made a beeline to it to save his life. That was one lucky rabbit for sure! Maybe next time he want wander so far from home. It almost cost him.
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.
