Dave Ebaugh of Bailey, Colorado is so proud of his son, Max, who took his very first deer recently. Someone made a comment that trophies are measured by the size of the heart of a hunter, from the highs and lows we go through, to the laughs and tears we express. The true trophy is the thrill, the excitement, the triumphs and the fun. Truer words were never spoken. My congrats to Max in our great wild and wonderful 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.
