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.
I recently won a new hunting book on Facebook that was written by Jay Campbell, called, Longbow: A Hunting Life! Jay writes about wild hunting adventures for magazines such as Gray's Sporting Journal, Sports Afield,Bowhunter,and Traditional Bowhunter. A former attorney, paramedic, and police officer, he weaves his complicated life into these true hunting tales as his partner Karen learns to hunt, and becomes the only woman known to take a water buffalo on the ground with a longbow. I'm looking forward to reading all about their adventures in chasing big game in the far fringes of northern Alaska, Australia, Hawaii and the Caribbean. They show us that in hunting, as in life, the joy is in the journey. If you are interested, you can purchased the book at http://www.campbellquest.com and by all means please check out his photography/blog at http://jaycampbellphotograph.com of wildlife in our great wild outdoors!
