Mike D. Samples of Lucedale, MS posted a picture on July 4 of Buddy Watson's 1961 trophy buck taken on public land in Sharkey County, MS. His brother Billy also killed a nice buck since they were running together in front of dogs just off the Little Sunflower River. What an awesome deer in our great Mississippi outdoors! Would love to harvest one like this one day! It would be a dream come true!
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.
