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.

Riding The Rails of The Lone Ranger
This is a little over 10 minutes long but well worth watching. It was published on October 13, 2013.
For the production of the movie, director Gore Verbinski had a five mile oval track built along with multiple engines and cars. See the incredible effort that went into crafting such a detailed and important part of The Lone Ranger.
Johnny Depp (The Rum Diary) plays Tonto to Armie Hammer's (J. Edgar) legendary law man in the 2013 movie The Lone Ranger.
The action adventure film brings Depp back together with the team behind at least three of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies: director Gore Verbinski, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and writers Terry Elliott and Ted Rossio. New to the party is co-writer Justin Haythe (Snitch).
In The Lone Ranger, Depp's Tonto recounts the tales that transformed Hammer's John Reid from law man to masked vigilante, seeking vengeance after justice failed them.
Also starring are Tom Wilkinson (The Conspirator), Helena Bonham Carter (The King's Speech) and Barry Pepper (True Grit).
