Cecil Kelly brought this fine 7 lb. large mouth bass by the Leader office last week. For the records this is the largest fish caught and displayed this year, as far as we know here at the Leader. By the way, Cecil says he caught the fish in a pond. Now that sure tells a lot, doesn’t it?

Bo Hoskins got to meet Bo Jackson at the annual meeting of the United Bowhunters of Missouri that was held last month in Jefferson City. Both Bo's are members of the Association. Bo Jackson was slated as one of the featured speakers at the meeting. Bo said he took up hunting when he was a student at Auburn."l was two hours from home and I didn't know anybody but the guys on the (Football) team. Most of them were hunters, and they got me interested in it. "After years of hunting deer with a rifle, Bo has become a bowhunter." From now on, I think I will hunt deer strictly with my bow. It's more challenging. "Bo said he owns 12 bows and does' most of his bowhunting in Alabama but looks forward to doing some bowhunting in Missouri this year.
