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.

Game Warden Stand Hunt

For my afternoon deer/hog hunt at the famous Christmas Place, Rex with Bob, drove me over to the Game Warden Stand.  The rain had already started as I crossed the field to get in my stand.  Rex took Bob over to the North Cornfield Stand across the road and down to my right.  Around 5:00 I heard a shot coming from Bob's way and he told us later that he had shot at a hog and missed.  I was facing a wildlife refuge and a deer/hog never came out in the field that I was hunting but did on the refuge.  Deer started coming out about 4:45 and it was pouring down raining.  After my hunt, I got down from my the stand and started walking out towards the road when I spotted 7 deer looking at me for about 10 seconds to my left, no more than 50 yards away and then they took off.  I heard another shot from Bob's direction and told Rex and Tony when they came to pick me up.  We hurried over to the stand and Bob was standing in the rain with his flashlight at the spot where he had shot.  He said he had already packed up his hunting gear and had taken out the bullets in his gun and was ready to climb down when another deer came out.  He reloaded and shot.  See the story of Bob's hunt and what he saw.  My congrats to Bob in harvesting a deer in our great outdoors.
