I talked to my ME friend, Linda Elliott, the other day and she was telling me about her husband, Bob's turkey. Linda is also a turkey hunter and will soon be in the woods trying to harvest her one. The Elliott's live in Mt. Vernon and met her years ago on bowhunting.net and we have been friends ever since. Bob's turkey weighed 19 lbs., and had a 9-inch beard. He was going out again the next day to try to get his second one. My congrats to Bob and wishing both of them a very successful turkey season in our great wild outdoors!
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.
