December 3, 2011

Have you ever used the phrase, “I’m getting too old for this?” Well, it doesn’t apply to Bryant native Frank Myers Sr.
Myers, who will turn 93-years-old on Dec. 9, shot an 8-point deer from about 50 yards away over the Thanksgiving weekend at his son’s deer camp in Union County.
“He invites me down every year on Thanksgiving day to his camp down in south Arkansas,” Myers said of his son. “They hadn’t seen many deer, but I saw five doe, four yearlings and the one buck. He just came walking out of the brush there, turned his side to me, so well, ‘You’re mine.’”
