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.

Air Rifle Used By Lewis & Clark

This is a very interesting video...and I do not recall it being taught in school.  Never knew a rifle like this ever existed.

Fascinating - I have never heard of the Lewis and Clark air-rifle. Also, very interesting video. I wonder, could it drop a deer? Small game for sure but I wonder about larger game!

Glad you enjoyed it DeanO...I GOOGLE the question about could it drop a deer and it has been done. If you are interested check it out! :)
