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.

Deer In Car Trunk

I received this article from my friend, Robert, in Port Townsend, WA, yesterday about a lady who was driving down I-5 near Lacey, WA, when she encounter a deer.  As Robert quotes, "This could ruin your day!"

Deer stuck in back of a Hyundai after crash on I-5 south near Lacey, WA.

LACEY, Wash.> A 55-year-old woman is lucky to have only suffered a few scrapes after her car collided with a deer on I-5 on October 18, 2011.

The woman was going south near Sleater Kinney Road when a deer ran across the northbound lanes, then jumped the jersey barrier into the southbound lanes, said Trooper Guy Gill with the Washington State Patrol.

The deer struck the woman's windshield, flipped over the car, then crashed into the back window and landed in the trunk.

Somehow, the woman was able to safely steer her car to the shoulder with the deer still stuck inside her car.

"This woman did an excellent job getting her car to the right shoulder without colliding with other motorists," Gill said.  "Not to mention, she's very lucky she didn't get seriously injured."

Troopers had to extricate the deer from the car before the car could be towed.

I know..pretty scary! That lady was very lucky to come out of that alive. Too bad for the deer tho. Hopefully, meat was given to a shelter for the homeless or Hunters For The Hungry organization.
