It’s A Convention For Hunters And Outdoorsmen

Chuck Zimmerman

He says he’s grown old with the Dixie Deer Classic. But Bruce Blackwell, General Manager, doesn’t look old to me. I caught up with him relaxing on a golf cart this afternoon.

Here’s another case of the shooter getting shot. And I don’t mean Deer or Deere. I’ve been on and off the computer today here at the Dixie Deer Classic and loving the free open wireless internet access.

Road Birds

Chuck Zimmerman

I told you I would be posting lightly for a couple days. It’s pretty wet in South Dakota with some early morning fog. However, if you look down the gravel road at our hunting lodge you can see some pheasants having a little get together out on the road. I just thought you might enjoy the fact that I am …
