Jim Hoover of DeBois, PA, took his daughter Maddy hunting yesterday and was also able to film her kill. He did a great job of filming with his phone when she shot it and then dropped the phone because he got so excited. He retrieved it in time to get a pix of it running off and of Maddy's reaction after getting her deer. She put a great shot on her buck with the crossbow. He said that the 2016 Archery Season is filling up the freezer and that's a good thing. My congrats to Maddy in our great wild outdoors and I'm so proud of her. PS: Jim thinks the cameraman should be fired!
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.
