Kylie Garris decided she needed to take a short break from being a mom, so she headed to the peace and solitude of a deer stand on her mother-in-law’s property in Union Parish.
Garris, mom to a 3-year-old daughter, an 18-month-old son and a newborn baby girl, made the escape while her husband Tom kept the three kids on the afternoon of Oct. 30 to give his wife a couple of hours of well-deserved peace and quiet.
Like many hunters throughout Louisiana and the other Southeast states, I grew up hunting deer with dogs. Members of the family kept deer hounds, and we anxiously awaited the “with or without dogs” segment of deer season.
Maci Messenger may not be a huge fan of math class, but she probably likes the symmetry of the numbers 11, 12, 13 and 14 after a special weekend deer hunt with her grandfather in northern Natchitoches Parish.
