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.

The Deer Camp

Coming into Brown's Point deer camp.

Lake in front of the deer camp.

Front of deer camp house. 

When we were members our room was up the stairs to the right facing the north side porch.  It has a full bath and 1/2 bath on the outside perimeter.

Gotta love this sign on the kitchen wall!

Bob with old hunting buddy, Craig Poche.  Behind on wall is the sign off of the fish camp house that is located north of the camp called, THISIT.  The fish camp is now in a deteriorating stage.  Bob and I had spent a couple of nights there back in the late 80's.

Bob with another hunting buddy, Dr. Poche, who is now a retired optometrist from the New Orleans area.

Dr. Poche and I.  Dr. Poche is 88 years old now and he still LOVES and LIVES to hunt.  I hope I will still be hunting when I turn 88!

Stable that was used for horses but now houses more ATV's.

Nothing quite like a hunting camp:). And I'm with you I hope I'm still hunting at 88 like Dr. Poche!!!

Thanks Main Line Sportsman and Joe...I had a flood of great/happy memories when I walked back into the main area of living/dinning/kitchen area. It still had that very distinctive smell that I remembered so well. :)

Marian - My mom's second husband was a member at Brown's Point in the 80s. My sister and I would come up there and hunt, fish, and ride 3-wheelers. I shot my first deer there and my sister shoved my whole head in the cavity. Great memories. I am assumings its stil an active camp.

Alan - Bob is my second husband and taught me all about deer hunting and was fortunate to get to go to Brown's Point. What was your mother's name or her second husbands might ring a bell with Bob..I enjoyed going there and got several deer plus two nice 8 pts. Yes, it is still an active camp. Check out what I wrote at my other blog, A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter.

Thanks for your visit and will come and check your site out soon~ :)
