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.

Bringing Home A Buck: Top 50 Sites!
I was humbled last week after receiving an email from, Ed Overton, of Engineering Degree Online of an article that he posted on his site called, Bringing Home a Buck: The Top 50 Deer Hunting Blogs. My hunting blog was one of the 50 sites included. I was also happy to see that some of my favorite hunting blogs were in the "TOP 50" such as: Whitetail Deer, Hunting Life, Deer Camp Blog, Whitetail Woods, Long Ridge Deer Camp, Outdoors With Othmar Vohringer, Women's Hunting Journal, The Hunter's Wife and Deer Passion. Ed has recently written articles on - Building for the Future: The Top 35 Green Architecture Bloggers, Top 49 Meteorology Blogs and Top 50 Archaeologist Bloggers. Please go by and check out his site because it is very informative. Many thanks to Ed Overton, for putting me in the same category as the hunting blogs shown above and for all the other hunting blogs not mentioned here.
