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.

It's According To Where You Live

Deer that live in our Vicksburg National Military Park are in a wildlife sanctuary.  This picture was taken by Marty Kittrell, a well know photographer here in Vicksburg.  He gave this picture to me at a flea market last year and was so touch by his gift.  Go and check out his site, Marty Kittrell's Photos of Vicksburg and surrounding towns on his blog.  You will be glad you did.  I have never seen a deer in the park and have lived here all my life but have seen a lot of turkeys.  The wildlife are very safe here and as the saying goes, it's according to where you live in the great outdoors.

This pictures was in The Vicksburg Post today and was taken by Marcie Brasfield of Alabama.  She was on a tour of the park when this doe stood nearly as still as the statue of General Ulysses S. Grant behind it.  Mary Louise Nosser of Vicksburg, a guide escorting Brasfield and her parents on the tour, submitted the photo.

Civil war monuments and whitetail deer, two things that are a huge interest to me.
