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 Christmas Place Workday

A nice campfire at the end of a hard days work at the camp!
Having good conversation around the Howell table!


Rex and I drove by their beautiful lake with "Othmar" in view heading back to camp.

Spencer and Michael stacking wood from the fallen tree.

Rex starting to cut down a huge tree for firewood and to clear the roadway.

Trent bush hogging the field near the North Cornfield Stand.

Camo taking a break after running beside us on the gator!

Spencer (Rex's son) on four-wheeler at the North Cornfield area.

Spencer took this picture of Rex and I at the North Cornfield watching Trent bush hog.
About a mile or so before I got to the camp Saturday morning, I saw seven deer in a field and two ran across the road in front of me. A nice beginning to a beautiful day! I pulled up at the camp around 10:00 and Rex was on the tractor cutting grass around the camp house. Paul, Rex, his Dad and Rennie (a family friend) greeted me and we soon sat down to visit for awhile. The weather was just perfect with a nice breeze blowing. It seemed like fall day. After lunch we took off to the woods to cut a huge tree that had fallen down across the road. Later we came back to the camp and freshen up to enjoy the rest of the evening with family, friends and guests. (We also had a drawing for a car giveaway and you'll have to check out Rex's site to see who the lucky winner was). Another wonderful get-a-way for me and on the way home Saturday night, about a mile or so from the camp, I had two nice size does to come out in front of me. A great ending to another memorable visit to the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club. Charming, Just Charming!
