Gregory Scott was building fences in a field off of Hwy 27 recently when he came across a snake that was 12 inches off the ground. He hollered to his brother to "bring the gun, bring the gun" and he shot at it twice but missed and his brother took the gun and shot it in the head. The snake had an estimated 13 rattles. He said he would not go back into the field until it was icy or snowed up, he said.
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.
