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.

Hummingbird Fun






While waiting for Hurricane Isaac to come through I would sit out on my porch in our glider. It was so hot in the house with the electricity off but the winds helped cooled things off during the day. We live in a bungalow-type cypress home and have two hummingbird feeders. Most of the time the two hummingbirds that show up have to use one when there are two hanging up and fight all the time.  Here are a few shots I took while waiting for Isaac to leave town!

They are definitely funny little creatures - great time filler. I have two feeders in different locations and find that they seem to congregate at one at a time. They just need to protect their territory...

I guess you are right about protecting their territory...I really enjoy watching them and the little squeaky noises they make. :)
