Have you ever used the phrase, âIâm getting too old for this?â Well, it doesnât 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 sonâs deer camp in Union County.
âHe invites me down every year on Thanksgiving day to his camp down in south Arkansas,â Myers said of his son. âThey hadnât 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, âYouâre mine.ââ
