Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Mr. Nuts In Hog Heaven!

The spotlight on Mr. Nuts!

My Facebook hog killing friend, Kareen Beinhauer, of Alpine, Texas, finally got the nasty old hog she named, Mr. Nuts.  Here is the story in her own words of how she finally got him last night! 

I am back in from sitting out. Before I got to the feeder in the Kawasaki, I looked to my right and there were some sows and young ones. I went on to the feeder and put one on top but they ran off up the hill which I decided was better because I did not want any other hogs to hear the gunshot. Javelin's were there and hungry and they finally looked up and ran off. I put my ear plugs in and took the safety off because the way they ran off I knew hogs were coming in. Sure enough, Mr. Nuts. He spooked a little but finally settled down to eat and I thought, screw a lung shot, I am taking a head shot as I had made sure my red dot was spot on. Dropped him in his tracks but I noticed his eyes were still blinking so I kept shooting him until I was absolutely sure he was dead!!! OMG!! What a hog!! I have been hunting him for at least two years and I can't believe he came in tonight!! Will post pictures next and for sure will take a picture of him hanging from the backhoe and hopefully get him weighed. RIP Mr. Nuts, you were a worthy opponent. Whoever says still hunting is boring is nuts, pardon the pun! LOL

Mr. Nuts weighed in at 250 lbs.

Way to go Kareen!  So freaking proud of you!  

My congrats to my hunting friend in our great wild outdoors!

Mr. Nuts tusks!

My Facebook friend, Mike Persichini, who hails from the Motor City, loves to take pictures of deer in the great wild outdoors.  He took this photo recently of two bucks and he captioned it...My rack is bigger than your rack!  Appreciate Mike taking all the pictures of bucks, does, fawns, coyotes or whatever else catches his eyes that we don't see everyday. He also feeds them in the wild as well as feeding and supplying fresh water for them in his own backyard. What dedication to the wild!  Way to go Mike!

Eating High On The Hog!

My Facebook friend, Terry Patterson, recently had a good friend to go and hunt down this hog that had been eating his corn on his property for two years but never in the day, only at night. 

He found out the next day that it weighed 500 pounds by weighing it on truck scales.  His friend did a head shot on him and dropped him in his tracks.  That will must definitely work since I have done the same killing a 180 lb. sow with a head shot and reloading and shot another smaller pig running away. 

I'm so glad that his good friend got this big old fat pig in our great wild outdoors.  It was eating high on the hog for sure!

Big Old Bobcat!

Donna Rice of Magee, MS, said that her husband killed this large bobcat recently because it was trying to get into her chicken pen. 

Her husband called the Game Warden to come and look at it because of it's size.

Not sure what the outcome was but it sure is a big old bobcat in our great wild outdoors.
