Publisher's Summary

Old Man Hawkins was a larger-than-life character among deer hunters, or, more precisely, among tellers and hearers of tall tales. His self-proclaimed method of hunting deer by holding a mirror in one hand and his rifle in the other, pointing backward over a shoulder, was, he said, "to be fair to the deer". It was a story, Davis tells us, that would occupy his father on the drive to Grandma's house.

Old Man Hawkins 🤣 Akin to Woman Swallowing Fly

I was tickled to find one more of Donald Davis' stories in the Audible Plus catalog. When the story of Old Man Hawkins started up (a story that Davis' father told on the way to Grandma's house), I was trying to picture in my mind what yarn he was going to come up with. 😂 Well, nothing I could've imagined could compare. Old Man Hawkins had them all buffaloed into thinking he was an expert hunter. What a funny and great tale it is! A lot like the old woman who swallowed the fly . . . it goes on and on . . . and I absolutely love it. Southern Storytelling . . . AT ITS VERY BEST! Donald's grandma also had his number when he was a kid, I can see, from these wonderful stories. 🤣 He couldn't pull much wool over Grandma's eyes. Please add more of the Donald Davis tales to the Audible Plus catalog!

Another funny story

I have trouble rating Do and Davis lower than 5 stars. He is a great storyteller of Southern yarns. In this one, he recounts a story his dad told them on a drive to their grandmas house.
I've liked all the stories by this author/narrator.
