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.

Chronicles of a Deer Hunter


I received an email last week from a lady deer hunter by the name of Niki. She's a 60's "young" deer hunting Gramma who loves it, just like I do! She wrote to let me know that she linked my blog site to her lenses on Squidoo, and invited me to check them out and if I haven't heard of Squidoo yet (or even if I have)...wanted me to link up with her lenses. (a "lens" she said, is just their term for a short web page. The idea is that you focus (as in focusing a lens) on one issue, or one subject. The idea is to publish as many "lenses" as you wish on any subject or subjects....and you can gather into groups to further focus your lenses, i.e., women who hunt).

She is a member of the Women Hunters Club too and Sue Burch (Founder) had given her permission to write an article on Squidoo about the club, and offers another place where we could exchange links. She just started a group on Squidoo, called "Women Who Hunt & Fish." If I decided to join Squidoo, she encouraged me to join her group. She commented that she does not usually write to people she don't know, but in this day of "social networking," she's learning that it's all about contacts and links. I also email her back and encouraged her to join our Outdoor Bloggers Summit whereby she will meet like-minded bloggers and give her more support. Here are some of her lenses on Squidoo.
