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 Watermelon Blast

Bob and I had wonderful time at the Water Valley Watermelon Carnival this past weekend and was so good to see my mentor and good friend Rex of Deer Camp Blog and visit with his family and friends again.  It was pretty hot but we had our tent pitched in a good spot near a tree which was nice and shady.  We did have a short rain shower to come up but other than that everything was great.  We did make a small profit on Bob's copper trees and got a lot of looks and compliments on his craft.  Actually, this was our first time at a flea market environment to try and sell his copper trees and we both enjoyed the experience just being there and being lazy, meeting and watching all the people, especially the children.  We also had his Dad's books, LIM and JEFF'S GOD, for sale that he wrote/published and made a nice profit on them as well.  Bob and I really appreciated Rex inviting us to come up to sell his copper trees and for all the help that we received to make it all possible for a fun watermelon blast!
