This sweet little lady just got her a real nice buck at 80 plus years old. I saw this picture when it fed through Facebook but did not have a name on her picture. She really has encouraged me and I hope I will still be hunting when I'm in my 80's. My sincere congrats to her and hope she will continue to hunt as long as she can in our great wild outdoors! Way to go!
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.
