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.

Hog Hunting & Deer Hunting

I'm so proud of all the young participants this past weekend at the Christmas Place Youth Hunt. They had a wonderful time and made memories that will last them the rest of their lives.

Sunday morning was a great harvest by the young hunters. Congrats to all three who each harvested a doe in our great outdoors in the MS Delta.

Bob, Two Dogs, and I went hog hunting Sunday morning near the Point Stand while Ethan was hunting with Paul. We saw plenty of deer but no hogs. While there I took a picture of Bob waiting for one to come out.
Rex's neighbor, Johnny Granberry dropped by mid-day on Saturday to show off his 11 pt. buck that he harvested with a bow on his property. Congrats Johnny!

Burney is pictured here with a hefty 205 lb. hog that he got with his bow. Recently he shot a hog with a .357 caliber pistol. This is the year for Burney Howell, Rex's cousin, at the famous Christmas Place!

Wow, what a nice time that must have been! How tough are hogs to take with bow? Jack

I just can't sit in the woods anymore since developing leaf mold allergy, but I'm sure glad to see the tradition continues!

Jack - I would say pretty hard! I know has to be a big challenge for sure.

Sorry to hear that you have developed leaf mold allergies Mushy. That does cut down on having fun in the woods.

Thanks guys for coming by and glad you are enjoying the pictures. :)
