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.

Mike's Bow Harvest

Mike (mrjbigfoot) my CamoSpace friend.

Took a 6-point Saturday evening, thought he was an 8 but I put an arrow right through his heart. Had 4 bucks moving around within 75-80 yards of me out in a big woods along with a doe and 2 yearlings that were 80 yards away out in a field edge. Then 2 of the bucks saw the doe and came running in at an angle to bring them to about 30 yards out and the bigger of the 2 stopped with his head behind a big tree but giving me a beautiful angling in shot on his vitals so I let the arrow fly! It went through his heart and stopped in his opposite leg bone and I could see the arrow hanging out as he ran. He only made it 30 yards and dropped about 40 yards from my stand where I could clearly see him laying there on the ground. I was about 25 feet up a nice tree in my climber! When I got down and drug him out to the field edge, the rain stopped, a little sun broke through a hole in the clouds and a beautiful rainbow dropped down on the other side of the field!

What a beautiful way to end a successful hunt!  Congrats Mike!
