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.

It's Turkey Time

Dalton Morgan,10, took his first turkey March 16 while hunting with his father in southern Warren County.  The turkey had a 6-inch beard and was shot from 35 yards away.  Dalton is the son of Brian and Jaclyn Morgan.  Dalton is one happy kid in our great wild outdoors!  My congrats!

Monty McGuffie shot this 20-pound turkey March 22 in Claiborne County.  The gobbler had seven beards measuring from 5 1/2-inch to 11 1/2-inches in length, and also had 1 1/4-inch spurs. 

Monty is also a taxidermist who mounted my very first 8 point buck.  His mother and I are good friends and worked together for the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers.  We have also deer hunted at my old hunting ground, Jasper Bottom Hunting Club in Claiborne County.  I'm so very happy for Monty and congratulate him on his fine gobbler!

I'm not a Turkey hunter but that's not to say I couldn't get the fever

I was invited by my friend, Sharon, to hunt with her at her home in Tennessee but will not be able to go. We had a blast hunting for a week at my camp 2 years ago before I got out of my camp. Her husband was stationed her for a year and got to me her. Hopefully, next year I can turkey hunt with her. Her turkey season started yesterday (March 31). She said she heard and saw a turkey behind her house in the hills and hopefully she will get it. If so, will post it here on my blog.

Dean - I had not turkey hunted in years and when I met Sharon and we went...I got the turkey fever bad. Just get you a caller and go sit by a tree and see if you can hear one gobble back. It's awesome when you can get them to talk back! Good Luck!
