As a bear was climbing up a tree stand...it was being recorded on a cell phone camera by a hunter on September 8, 2010, near Newfolden, MN.
Even if you’re not a hunter, this will give you a moment of pause. A deer hunter is up in his stand, atop a ladder. Instead of a big buck and a freezer of steaks coming around, a huge bear wanders into view and curiously begins to climb up the hunter’s ladder.
What would you do?
Would you be this cool?
Would you realize that a simple question would send the bear packing?
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.
