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.
Bob and I hunted together Sunday morning at the Game Warden's Stand. It was a beautiful cold and crisp morning and we watched the sun come up from this side-view window. We had 3 does to come out at the far end of the field about 200 yards and we watched them feed. This is a beautiful stand with a great view overlooking a wildlife refuge in front of the field with a road dividing the two. Also, where sunflowers were planted on the refuge for this past dove season. It was indeed a beautiful site to behold!
My husband, Bob.
