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.

Rifles Sited In

Sunday morning Bob and I met Greg, my stepson, down at the farm south of town to zero in our rifles.  Greg brought all the gear and did not take us very long to get sited in.  Our guns were basically right on the target with only one going out at the beginning and corrected.  We shot near a beautiful majestic 70 year old wild pecan tree and was told that the MS River had gotten about 6 feet above the treeline during the great Flood of 2011.  The property ends about ½ mile from the river.  Below are a few pictures I took at the farm and we are set to go for deer/hog season beginning soon our great wild outdoors.  GOODHUNTING to one and all!

You can almost see where the waterline was 6 feet up this pecan tree.
