I came across this article on the Outdoor Life site of a weather prediction database for whitetail deer which is powered by Weather2Hunt and thought, this is so cool! You can type in your zip code and it will give you a 5-day Whitetail forecast, 24-hour Whitetail forecast and a 5-day Whitetail forecast with the moon, wind and sky. Each graph baseline is based on whitetail movement and harvest data recorded in the field in the last 10-plus years. Today's rating is very good for the Vicksburg area. This is a great tool to go by before you set out on your hunt and will increase your chances of getting a very nice deer. All this is based on fact and not theory. It can also be used for fishing and turkey hunting forecast.
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.
