This past Wednesday, Grant, shot his first deer, a very nice 8 point buck! My Class of 1959 classmate, Walter, sent me a picture of his proud grandson yesterday. Walter's son has a deer camp in Lowndes County, west of Montgomery, Alabama, where the deer was bagged this past Wednesday. This is a great birthday present for Grant since he just turned 13 years old. My congrats to Grant who is now hooked for life on being a hunter 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.
