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.

A Piebald Whitetail Fawn






The term `piebald`, used to identify a whitetail with at least one extra splotch of white hair, has an interesting origin. 'Pie' means 'mixed up;' 'bald' means 'having a white spot.'
To a horseman, a 'piebald' is a horse with black and white splotches; one with brown and white splotches actually is known as a 'skewbald.' What a beautiful creature in our great wild outdoors!

I have heard of the piebald coloration for deer, but haven't seen one until the pictures on your blog.

I don't think so Jack...someone sent me these pics and wanted to share them. I don't know where they got it from. Thanks for coming by everyone!
