My husband, Bob, took this picture of me in a tripod on Kings Point Island, at Brown's Point Hunting Club (Anderson-Tully land) back in the late 80's. This was George Joy's stand near the MS River. I remember taking a beautiful picture of a sunrise from this stand and gave it to George. I wished I had it now to show you how beautiful it was.
Also, I don't know if it was this particular day or another hunt on this stand that I left my rifle on the floor of the stand and climbed down to use the bathroom. Would you believe a doe just politely walked no more than 30 yards from me, looked at me and kept walking across the road. She knew what she was doing! I have never left my gun on the floor of a tripod since. It taught me a good lesson.
The orange hat that I'm wearing is one that I chose because I never knew another lady hunter back 25 years ago until I met, Margie Brown, at Jasper Bottom Hunting Club. Her and her husband leased the Anderson-Tully land in Claiborne County that we hunted on. She wore a hat like this one and I wanted to be just like her. I still have my orange hat and cherish it to this day. I will most likely leave it to my daughter, Kathy, who is an avid hunter.
