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.

Vicksburg's 15-Point Trophy Buck!

Vicksburg resident Jerry Brown took down a 15-point trophy buck while hunting on private land south of Bovina on November 27, 2011.  The buck weighed 280 pounds and scored 151-3/8 points on the Boone and Crockett scale.  Its rack measured 18-1/2 inches across.  Bovina is only a hop, skip and a jump from Vicksburg!


My congrats to Jerry Brown!  

Bradley McCullough bagged this seven-point, 180-pound buck with his 7mm-08 on November 12, 2011.  The buck's rack measured 18-1/2 inches on the main beam and 14 inches across.  Bradley is the son of Tim and Kim McCullough.

Austin Neihaus, 14, killed this 10-point buck while bow hunting on November 21, 2011.  Neihaus made the shot from 30 yards away.  My congrats to Austin and Bradley on their trophies in our great wild outdoors!

Watch this video of this little girl who took her first deer.  It brought back a lot of memories when I got my first deer, a six-point buck!  She is so lucky to be young and becoming a lady hunter for years to come.  I was in my mid-forties before I became a hunter and was so fortunate that my 2nd husband-to-be, Bob, took me hunting and soon told him, I can do this!!!
