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.

A Hoppy Frog Ending
The Department of Wildlife and Fisheries says in a news release that an experimental frog season's limit is 50 frogs per boat at the Salvador Wildlife Management Area near Des Allemands. But one boat checked late Saturday held 69, and a second held 99.
Enforcement agent Adam Einck says all three men in those boats were cited for exceeding the legal frog limit, which has maximum penalties of 90 days in jail and a $350 fine.
He says the frogs were alive and were returned to the water.
