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.

Mike's Special Buck!

Here is a picture of Mike and him in December 2010 and was a small 10 pointer.  He put his camera on a tripod to take this picture.  You can see how close they were then.

Mike Persichini, who is my Facebook friend, has been photographing this awesome buck for the last 3 years now.  He first came across him one winter when he was laying in the snow very sick.  He gave the buck some water from a water bottle and went and got some corn and apples and fed him.  He lived and never forgotten him.  He said, when he sees me, he meets him in the woods and will come to him. Since this has been going on for the last 3 years he hopes he will have more time with him.

Mike said that this is not his land, but a 100 acres in the city with no hunting and bigger deer have been poached there. Two of the bigger ones that he has been photographing, have vanished and was close to them also.  

Mike has posted a lot of pictures of this buck using his Cannon 60D and was going to stop, but can’t help himself.  As you can see the lighting and the colors were just right on this particular November morning below.  He said the snow will soon come to his hometown of Troy, Michigan and trying to get in as many shots as he can.  Mike also has deer, ducks, squirrels, etc., that he feeds in his own backyard.  

Mike feeding his addiction on a November morning recently.  Found him resting in the timbers!

In this picture he was only 8 feet in front of him.

He comes running when he sees him.

He told the does to go get the big boys and he would give them some corn!!!

You need to go over to Mike's Facebook and look at all the fantastic pictures he has taken, not only of this one buck, but of other bucks and does.  Joan Persichini, a relative, said they are going to start calling him the DEER WHISPERER!

Thanks everyone...I thought he was part Indian to be able to get close but he then told me the story why this buck is so close to him and lets him take pictures without fear. They really have a special bond. Mike has an awesome camera also and a good eye to take these beautiful pictures of the buck. Will be sharing more as I get them from him. :)

You should check out the video of Mike hand feeding his buck. I am fortunate enough to have known Mike since our school days and I alway look forward to the photos he posts.
