My hunting friends, Linda and Bob, who live in Mount Vernon, Maine, sent me a picture of their daughter, Ashley, who recently got her second buck at a "perfect" 190 yard shot. It weighed 113 lbs. and a 4-point. She got her first buck, an 8-point, five years ago and it weighed 157 lbs. Ashley is also an avid turkey hunter. Her Mother and I met on bowhunting.net forum about 12 years ago and we have stayed in touched all these years. I know her Mom and Dad are so very proud of her and so am I. Congrats Ashley!
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.
