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.

Elbow Stand Hunt





Rex and I hunted the Elbow Stand at his famous Christmas Place early Saturday morning in hopes of blasting a hog or a deer.  No hogs came out but we saw our first deer at a point by the tree in front of us and later eight deer came down through the center of this huge field.  It was too far away to make a clean shot and a buck was also seen following the does.  We glassed the deer and I did not think at the time of taking a picture.  I was hoping for more deer to appear but that was it and we got down from the two-man stand around 9:00 to head back to camp.  This stand was on a huge oak tree with a running creekbed behind us, which was a nice sound effect.  We were really lucky to get this hunt in before the rain settled in for the remainder of the day/night.  As we were walking back to the 4-wheeler, Rex pointed out a deer rub and I stopped to take a picture of it.  This was a huge soybean field and a great source of food for the deer and hogs.  Again, it was so nice to share another memorable hunt together in our great outdoors.  Charming, Just Charming!
