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.

Double Antlers?

These pictures were sent to me yesterday by my friend Steve on Facebook.  This deer was seen in Colorado Springs and this BIG BOY wanders the downtown streets.  He probably won't get shot, but will be hit by a car, he said.  There are two separate base antlers on each side, plus big drop on the right side.  WHOA, what a deer!





What a crown of antlers!  Unbelievable!

I would imagine that there are several game farms that would love to trap him for breeding purposes. Crazy antlers seems to be all the rage nowadays.

obviuosly Thunderhoof has a girlfriend out there to produce those kind of kids.
they better not wander over to the Christmas Place or a car will be the least of their problems.

Thanks guys...that's some kind of awesome buck for sure! Rex, if one of his kids gets anywhere near the Christmas Place, I hope I'm at the right place at the right time to take him out for you! ;)
