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.

A Working/Fun Weekend

We got to the camp around 10ish and Rex was cleaning out his upright freezer that he brought to the camp to replace the freezer that went out.  Bob and I went right to work helping him  We had to take a lot of breaks because it was getting hotter and hotter by the minute...and yes, even Rex and Camo took a break!  Mark and Burney were in the house cleaning and doing some electrical work.  A good bit was accomplished at the camp Saturday and Rex's Dad, Hershel, took Bob and I down the road behind the Game Warden's office on the Hillside National Wildlife Refuge, to show us the beautiful sunflowers that were planted for the very first time in preparation for an upcoming dove hunt.
  
Some still in bloom and all facing east.

Bob took this picture when he climbed up in the bed of the truck to get a birds eye view.  We were a few days to late to see all in full bloom.  That must have been a beautiful site!

Let us bow our heads and pray!

A flower to bring home to plant seeds come next Spring.  Sunflowers are one of my favorites.

Some still in bloom.
