Rachel Williams Davidson and her husband Matt, who's from Brazil, were helping out Rachel's uncle who's house went under during the recent floods in Louisiana. They rescued 54 chickens, 1 peacock and 1 turkey. He said that their house is high and dry. They had to go back a second time to get 2 roosters and found 1 more hen. The total is 56 hens, 2 roosters, 1 turkey and 1 white peacock.
It is amazing that they all stayed in the boat. Matt said that they are all in their backyard getting some sun. Now worries!
A great rescue in our wild outdoors and a unique picture!
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.
