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.

Friendship!


Two years ago today, Bob and I met Rex Howell, his fiancee, Denise and his family for the first time. We were invited to meet up at his deer camp called the Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on a Saturday morning. The camp is about an hour and half due northeast of Vicksburg in the Mississippi Delta. Since that time my husband and I have enjoyed the friendship of all his family and friends. Here we are standing in front of one of many Indian mounds on their property. We had so much fun riding around the camp on 4-wheelers and gators that day. It was the beginning of a wonderful friendship that my husband and I hold dear and feel very fortunate to have met such a nice man. Rex came to my website from a forum back on January 29, 2007 and signed my guestbook and it took off from there. I had even lapsed on my blogging and he encouraged me to keep blogging and soon became my mentor as well. Bob and I think the world of his family and we look forward to many more fun times together and our continued friendship. Thanks Rex!

Thanks Deer Passion, Matt and CdGardens for coming by and commenting. I have also enjoyed meeting you all online and hope one day we will meet. I feel like I know you already and it would make it extra special to meet you in person someday. Technology is great! :)
