I want to wish my grandson, Ethan, a very Happy 16th Birthday today! The above picture was taken last November at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club during a Youth Hunt weekend. While we were waiting for Rex, his son, Spencer and daughter, Erin to come from their stands, Ethan wanted me to take his picture on Rex's 4-wheeler. It was a great fun weekend for all the young hunters. Ethan has never harvested a deer yet but he will one day. It's just a matter of time. Wishing him many more birthdays to come. Gran Gran loves you!
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.
