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.

No Deer - Just Wild Turkeys!

While sitting on my deer stand I decided to pull a "his-self" who takes pictures of his shoes!

This is to the right of my deer stand going towards the camp house. I have seen deer cross this road coming up the hill from the left to the right side. The Big Black River is to the far right.

To the left of my stand is the road going towards the main gate. My grandson shot at a big buck as it was crossing this road last year, but missed. The land abuts two deer camps, Mill Pond and Homewood Hunting Club.

Looking down towards the bottom of the hill where I saw 6 wild turkeys walk by. It was a very windy day and I enjoyed just sitting there and waiting for a deer to appear and watching squirrels, chipmunks and birds at my camp, Jasper Bottom Hunting Club in Claiborne County. I have actually harvest a doe coming up the hill towards the road a few years ago. It was good to know that there were three other hunters there just in case I harvested a deer and needed help. I have hunted this land for over 22 years now and where I harvested my first deer, a six point buck opening day near the Big Black River in our great outdoors!

I bet you saw a lot of nice little creatures while you were on your deer stand. Turkeys can certainly be entertaining comedians.

Quiet is good. ;)
