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.

Tagging A Texas Eastern Turkey

Jeremiah Bennett, from Royse City, TX and my friend on Facebook, snuck away yesterday morning and managed to put a tag on another Texas Eastern.  He said, it's been too much work and not enough hunting. This is a great shot of his turkey slung across the hood of his grandpa's old Ford.  My congrats, Jeremiah on a very nice turkey in our great wild outdoors.  #TexasEasterns

He had an 11" beard...

...and 1-1/8 spurs.

A brave little girl!

A New York Youth Hunt Successful!

My Facebook friend Todd Imiola's son, Hunter, had a successful New York youth hunt this morning and shot at 6:30 a.m.  It had a 9-5/8" beard, 1-1/8" and 1-1/4" spurs.  A great looking bird and an awesome hunt in our great wild outdoors!  My congrats to a job well done young man!

Todd said that the Primos Power Crystal and Kee Kee striker once again proves to be fatal.  So sweet sounding and hard to resist. It's a well worn call but still killing them!

Hunter saying...Who's gobbling now?
