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.

Snake and Jakes

As Sharon made her way to the levee on the right side of the camp to hunt, I hunted the ground blind stand on the road.  So, from 1:30 to 3:30 we hunted.  It was very windy and I did hear a turkey gobble several times to the left side of the levee and was hoping that Sharon was calling it in.  It finally stopped and then I noticed something moving in the grass in front of my stand.  It was a baby snake but do not know what kind.  If anyone out there knows what it is, please leave me a comment.

At 4:00 we went back over to the left side of the camp where I had seen the two turkeys come out yesterday morning.  While we were walking in and got closer to the first stand we eased around a turn in the road and Sharon saw a turkeys head to the right in the field and said she was going to try to get closer to it.  I stayed back and waited.  Soon I saw two jakes running up the hill and then she motioned for me to come and said that three jakes were coming down the hill to feed and she spooked them and two went back up the hill and the other jake and turkey ran into the woods.  It was exciting to see this just walking in.  So she stayed there to hunt and I went on down to the next stand as shown.  We only hunted for about an hour and came out.  We are planning to leave the house at 5:30 in the morning to get the ground blind set up near the stand and I will get in the stand with my camera.  This could be her MS turkey...
