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.

Back Home From A Snowy VA

My adorable granddaughter, Emma, that I love and miss so very much!

My youngest and beautiful daughter, Suzi, that I love and miss so very much!

Suzi took this picture of me in her backyard. Deer have been seen from her bay window she said.

It was real Christmassy flying into Richmond, VA, at sunset with all the city lights in the fallen snow last Tuesday. I made it back home yesterday with more sleet and snow that's predicted for tomorrow in VA. I came home with a cold but trying to shake it off so I can hopefully go deer hunting this coming weekend. While in Virginia, I was offered a hunting trip by blogger/outfitter friend, Kevin Paulson, of HuntingLife.com, after he found out that I was in town. I really appreciated his offer but told him I will take him up on a hunt my next trip up. Many thanks to my deer mentor/friend, Rex, for taking over my blog while I was gone. Here are a few pictures in the backyard after a downpour of rain, a few days after I got there, which almost melted all the snow. It's good to be back home in Mississippi and hope all my bloggers/friends had a wonderful Christmas as I did.
