Special care needed before taking buck to taxidermist

Special care needed before taking buck to taxidermist

Granted, I have had precious little experience involving getting my buck prepared for the taxidermist. My experience totals one eight point buck I took in 1998. Brian Estes, of Estes Taxidermy in Ruston, did a great job on mounting my 140 inch 8 point buck because I presented him with enough of the deer’s cape with which to work.

Great American Smokeout slated

Great American Smokeout slated

The theme for Great American Smokeout (GASO) 2019 is “Start with Day One.” It was selected by the American Cancer Society to reflect what we all know about tobacco addiction—that quitting smoking isn’t easy; it takes time; and a plan. The Great American Smokeout doesn’t mean people have to quit smoking in one day, but rather the day for smokers to start their journey toward a smoke-free, healthier life.   

In observance of this year’s GASO on Thursday, Nov. 21, the Smoking Cessation Trust (SCT) is encouraging Louisianans to start their journey to quitting nicotine forever by utilizing the free cessation products and services it provides.

The Giants played their last regular season game this past Friday as they welcomed the Marksville Tigers to town. The Giants have been dominant in the matchups between these teams as they have won the last three games against the Tigers.

It would be senior night for the Giants as they would honor their senior football players, cheerleaders, dance line members, and band members. It would be an important game for both teams as the Giants were looking to get a win to get a high seed for the playoffs.

Marksville was looking to stay unbeaten in district and set up a district championship game against Caldwell in the following week. It always seems like when these two teams meet there is a lot to play for.
