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.

A Hog Wild Weekend!

Mark's 200 pound wild boar.

A picture of Rex and I at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club with one of three boars that was harvested last Saturday. This particular one weighed 200 lbs., and was shot by Mark Stewart, the mailrider. He also harvested another hog and a doe. It was absolutely a hog wild weekend! I told Rex that I was interested in trying to harvest a hog myself. We have made plans for me to come back in the spring and get on the Privy Stand, since they have been tearing up the ground over in that area. Jeff over at LowCountry Hunting and The Hog Blog are two sites that I will be checking out to learn more about wild hog hunting in our great outdoors. Charming, Just Charming!

Sounds like you had a great hunt over at the Christmas place, and those are some great pictures you took while there. I especially loved the bobcat photo since I know how hard they are to capture on film in the wild.
Thanks also for the link!

Thanks Jeff - The Christmas Place is a great place to hang out and have fun. Great people. Glad you liked my Bobcat...I thought it was a pretty cool shot myself. Was more than happy to give you a plug my friend. :)

Thanks for the link.

I wish we had a few more hogs to hunt around here. Well, sometimes I do, and sometimes I don't. They can be so destructive.

I'm always glad to see fellow bloggers and hunter doing their part to keep the population under control.

Thanks for coming by simplyoutdoors. Yes, they can be very destructive but they are good to eat. Looking forward to trying to harvest me one at Rex's place. That would be awesome! :)
