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.
When we came out from hunting opening day a couple of men were trying to round up their hunting dogs using a radio antenna. They were missing two of their dogs and Gerald walked back to the edge of the field and the dogs came running out. Near one of the road entrances, Gerald has two horses, Duke and Prince, that were looking on as the men captured their dogs. The 300 acres we hunted on is right up against the Natchez Trace.
