Dr. Walter E. Johnston, Jr., our doctor, took this very nice buck at Old River north of town on January 2, 2012. He has had a very good hunting season! You can see how happy he is to have harvested this very nice buck after taking pictures of it in our great outdoors. Our congrats to a great physician, an excellent hunter and an actor who plays "Big Mike" (a dance hall proprietor) in Gold In The Hills melodrama. You go Dr. Johnston!
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.
