We got to the camp at 12:45 and while walking in at 100 yards in front of us, a coyote came out of the woods and ran from us. Did not like to see that, but went on in to try to make the best of our turkey hunt. I just stayed in one spot while Brad walked the circunference of the field and nothing gobbled for both of us. We signed out at 3:00 and came back to Vicksburg. The woods were filled with new growth and some real pretty wildflowers. Coming home stopped to take pictures of my favorite, cows! We have more bad weather predicted for this weekend and I think turkey hunting will be a washout! This is it for me, until next year.
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.
