Early yesterday morning my husband, Bob and step-son, Greg, took off for Brown's Point on Kings Point Island before the storm hit. Greg was going to get his chairs from the deer stands and Bob was going along for the ride. When they got to the stand Bob looked over and saw a deer carcass lying on the ground. It was a very nice 8 pt. buck. Greg took a picture of it on his phone and later reported it to the camp. They surmised that it may have come over from another camp and died there. They had recently hunted the area a couple of weeks ago. Above is a picture that I took of the buck on our front walkway. Greg took it home to do an European Mount on the deer. If you are interested on the "how to" on a European Mount, watch the video below.
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.
