    It is about time D&DH got a new Southern Editor. A tunnel-visioned focus on northern and midwest regions and an almost complete lack of articles and info on hunting deer in the south is the MAIN reason I let my subscription lapse last year. A lot of southern deer hunting is done on land leased from timber companies which presents a whole host of issues and obstacles not encountered when hunting heavily agricultural areas like the midwest. On average, Southern deer may be smaller than their northern counterparts, but based on discussions with southern hunters who travel to those regions, if you can hunt leased timber land, you can hunt anywhere. But learning the ropes is an arduous learning process. I hope Mr. Clemons will be given enough inches in the magazine to make up for that dearth of data.
