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.

U.S. Navy SEAL Extraction!


I had a friend to send me this video recently of a Navy Seal Extraction.  Please read the info below before you view the video.

Attached is a rarely seen video of a U. S. Navy SEAL extraction filmed from inside an MH-47 Chinook helicopter.  The pilot has lowered the ramp, dipped the tail end into the water to partially flood the compartment, (a maneuver that requires very precise flying) and awaits the Navy Seal's to board in their F-470 Zodiac.  You have just got to love the skill of our military...very few pilots would attempts this.  It's too easy to lost lift, and ditch the whole chopper.  He said that this was pretty cool, similar to loading tanks into the back of a flooded LSD or LPD using and LCU or LCMs.  Now, click on the video.
