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.

3-Legged, 8 Pt. Buck!

Vicksburg resident Ernie Monk snapped this photo of a three-legged, 8-point buck in his backyard on January 22.  It's uncertain how the deer lost its leg.

Vicksburg Youth on the Hunt

Seven-year-old Conner Paxton shot this 6-point deer on December 20.  It weighed 227 pounds and its rack had a 17-1/4-inch spread.

Vicksburg resident Braden Kapp shot this 8-point, 220-pounder south of Mound, Louisiana on January 12.  The buck had a 17-inch spread.  My congrats to both Conner and Barden for their success in our great outdoors.

Three legs didn't slow him down.
