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.

Between Hunts

Took this picture of Bobby sitting in the swing with his dog, Lady.  She loves to play and has a tennis ball in her mouth.  I enjoyed playing with her and she loved fetching the ball for me.  At times, she would catch the ball in mid-air.  Afterwards, I went inside and baked some biscuits and fried up deer sausage for the guys.  The deer sausage that we brought up was from the deer that Bob and I had gotten back in November.  It went all the way to Vicksburg and back!  

Close-up of Lady with her toy!

Trigger, taking a nap and snoring up a storm!  

Austin, up on the roof, cleaning the leaves off!  

The rest of the afternoon chores were taken care of around the camp and then everyone either took a nap, watched TV or sat around outside to enjoy the beautiful weather that we were having.  It was like a spring day!  Later, we all took off to the woods for our evening hunt.  Will be continued...

You can sign me up for some fried Deer Sausage. Yummy - I can always get our pugs to chase the tennis ball and sometimes even pick it up...bring it back to me is the impossibility. I truly enjoy your stories and posts.
