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.
Dr. Walter Johnston, our doctor, has had an excellent deer season so far with two nice 8 points and a doe! Below are pictures of his 8 points that he has shared with us. One taken at his deer camp and the bigger one taken north of Vicksburg and back to his camp. He is such a dedicated and compassionate doctor and we are so pleased that he has taken time out for himself to enjoy the great sport of hunting in our wild outdoors!
Nice 8 point at his camp.
He shot this buck at 300 yards and weighed approximately 300 lbs. with his .700 rifle.
