The evolution of the deer hunter

Body
On November 24, 1967, I went deer hunting for the first time. My venture with friends to Summerfield in Claiborne Parish resulted in my downing the biggest buck, antler points wise, I have ever taken. Bill Bailey’s hounds pushed a 10-point buck past me and I got him. I have killed bigger deer since but none with more points.

Anna Kate, high school senior, learns hunting lessons well

This is a busy time of year for me with my assignment from LA Sportsman magazine to interview successful hunters and write stories about how they took trophy bucks. There has been little time to cover other matters regarding the outdoors as long as deer season is going on.

Joy and other labs that I have known – Part 2

Body
Once after shooting a group of ducks that pitched into a “tank” on our lease in Lampasas (West Texas), Joy disappeared into the tall grass surrounding the tank. Truth be told, I was getting a little nervous, but Joy wasn’t one to abandon a retrieve if she could get to the bird. After what seemed 20 minutes, Joy returned to hand, whined, turned back to where she came. I made Joy stay as we continued hunting.
