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 Taj Mahal Morning Hunt

I was excited about being put on the Taj Mahal stand Tuesday morning which is the nicest one at the Christmas Place hunting grounds.  Rex (Deer Camp Blog) usually decides where Bob and I need to go according to the prediction of the wind patterns.  The wind prediction was going to be 14 miles per hour and with the chill factor it made for a very cold morning hunt.  Rex dropped me off and then he went to the Elbow Stand.  It was unfortunate that I did not see a deer but enjoyed watching a huge number of birds out in the fields where peanuts had been planted.  A hunt is never wasted because you have nature and God's creatures to enjoy and to keep you company!

In front of me.

Behind me where Rex brought me in.

Field to the left where I have seen deer come out...but not today.

Birds in the fields enjoying a left-over peanut feast.  

I took a couple of pictures of myself while hunting.

Morning hunt is over and time to pack up and leave with Rex on his way to pick me up.

Leaving the Taj Mahal!

You had a good view of everything from the Taj Mahal.

Being outside in the still of the morning,waiting for deer is a great way to start the day!

Looked at your video and it seems like the hunter was calling the moose to him and came right up to the stand...awesome...and my congrats. Very nice moose. Thanks for sending to me and letting me see your hunting site in Sweden. :)

Yes, CDGardens...nothing like being in a deer stand and waiting for an adventure in nature. :)
