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.

A One-Man Hunting Blind

My husband and I recently invested in a One-Man Chair Blind, mainly for him to hunt out of.  He has been having some health issues lately with his back and cannot climb into a deer stand anymore.

Back in the early 90's he had a very bad experience from a "BIG MAN" climbing tree stand that could have killed him.  The weld broke on the standing platform and he loss his balance and the only thing that saved him was his safety belt.  It slammed him up against the tree, wrenched his back, broke ribs and messed up his front teeth.  He does not remember how he got down.  It was a good thing that he was not hunting alone and a hunting buddy, Brad, was nearby and heard the noise and came to his rescue.

He has had two necks and one back surgery already under his belt, so this one-man hunting blind will surely come in handy for him to hunt from.  He is really excited about using it and hopefully will harvest a deer this season in our great wild outdoors!

This one man blind looks like a great idea. There are so many good locations one can set this unit up and shoot deer. I'm sorry to hear about his accident. I have a friend who was climbing out of a stand when a wooden ladder rung broke. She fell 15 feet and hit her back on a tree stump. She was down and out for almost two years and to this day she takes heavy pain medication...but..she is still an avid hunter. So, I'm very happy your husband still hunts despite his serious injury. Thankful he was in a harness

This is a good investment for hunting. We dont use that so much in Sweden but in Norway they use it often for deer hunt. We hunt mainly with dogs.

Those really are nice. That one is similiar to the brand new one I have for sale on the TRADING POST page on my blog.

Thanks guys for your comments. We will give it a try and hope he has good luck with it. It's a clever idea for someone in his condition or not. I even sprayed it down with KIWI Heavy Duty Water Repellent CAMP DRY for extra silicone protection. It's also great for tents, tarps, boots, hunting apparel, outdoor gear, boat covers and patio furniture. I featured the product on my blog not long ago for a review after sending to me. :)
