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.

Hunting The Taj Mahal

Rex (Deer Camp Blog) and Mark dropped me off at the "newest" deer stand, Taj Mahal!  What a deer stand!  Deer were already in the field waiting on me!  I could barely make them out and gradually saw two does with a fork n' horn grazing.  When I took this picture the buck had already left the scene and traveled over towards the Levee Stand to the left. Moments later the does went back into the brush.  No more deer came out.  I hunted until 9:00 and Bob (Two Dogs) said he saw me from where he was across the field getting down to leave the stand.  It was such a beautiful morning that I decided to walk back to camp.  While on the way, Davin and Dean stopped on the gator to let me know that they were headed to get Dean's hog that he had killed earlier off the Arrowhead stand.  It was shaping up to be a great day for hog and deer...and it was!

Looking towards the main road from the Taj!

Zoomed in and got this picture of Bob near the Elbow Stand after I glassed him.

Shadow of the Taj Mahal!

Picture of Davin on the left with his son Dean and hog.  His 45.70 kicked him in the nose since he had to shoot at an angle to get his hog from behind a tree.  My congrats again to Dean on his fine hog kill!
