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.

No Excuses!

This is a picture of Jessie, Faye's dog who is a 12 year old cocker spaniel. At this point Jessie is looking at her. I had to take a lot of pictures just to get these two. She was bouncing all over the place. She has allergies and had to be clipped. She takes good care of her master since her husband died about 4 years ago.

I like this picture of Jessie even though it's a little blurry. Looks like a painting to me.

I took this picture of a spider on Faye's front porch while sipping wine and enjoying the afternoon. No deer came out but going home saw a lot of deer grazing on the side of a hill and two on side of the road.

We went to my daughter's sister-in-law, Faye's camp house/home in Claiborne County about 30 minutes from the house. She has 10 acres of land with her home tucked up in the woods. She sees a lot of deer around her home, plus a bear when it was being built about 12 years ago, snakes, skunks, etc. There is a bear crossing sign coming to her home on Hwy 61 South.
I save the political campaign signs...they make great targets!

My daughter, Kathy, shooting my .270. She will be hunting with me this season and I will use Bob's .270. We also have a .44 mag that I want to use to harvest a deer. Bob has harvested a deer with it and I want to try and see if I can do it also.

Siting in my .270.

Jamie siting in his .22 rifle and later his 30.6.

Bob, my daughter, Kathy and Jamie, her son-in-law, took off Sunday afternoon and headed down to Faye's camp house/home in Claiborne County. This was our first trip to Faye's and we really had a great time siting in our guns and visiting. Last deer season, while at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club in the MS Delta, I missed two deer and only had 5 bullets. I was so upset over that and very embarrassed. I hope this season that I will do better. I don't want to lose my touch...not at this late date! After returning home, we went and sited in my gun again and went back up the the Christmas Place but only saw a spike. I did get to shoot a nice picture of a bobcat though. So, now my rife is dead on and I have no excuses, right Rex?

Looks like fun! Probably the best use for those signs, too.

Good luck with your deer season.

Marian, I also love that second picture of the dog. And it does look like a painting.

Looks like you all had a good time!
