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.

An Abandoned Car In Woods

While walking out of the woods last Friday morning from hunting, something caught my eye. As I moved closer into the woods, I noticed an old abandoned car.  It reminded me of all the old abandoned vehicles at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club that my hunting friend, Rex, showed me.  One day, we actually rode around the camp and took pictures of all of them for a give-a-way contest!  When I see an old car like this, I often wonder who the car had belonged to and if it could only talk would have some tall tales to tell!  Below are a few shots I took...no, not gun shots...but was literally a target for someone!

The abandoned car is an interesting object for pictures. I have to agree with you about divulging it's secrets. ;)

I have a friend from Church whose acreage has become his personal family refuse area for many a year. You want old cars, old boats, trailers, steel, wood trash...there it is. It's been one of those eye openers for my wife and I. Hm - could that car be a blind?

It could possibly be a blind DeanO...if you dare to sit in the car and wait...I'm sure the deer have become accuston to seeing it and would not be afraid to be near it...excellent idea DeanO! :)
