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.

Sharon's Tennessee Turkey!

My hunting friend, Sharon, lives in the hills of Tennessee near Pigeon Forge and has all kinds of wild animals around her home. Monday evening around 4:30 she heard a gobbler behind her house and decided then and there that she was going to get up early and hunt.  She even sent me a message on Facebook to wish her luck.  Yesterday, she sent me her picture with the turkey she got and was so excited for her.  Look at that smile! She is one happy turkey hunter!

She used to live in Vicksburg while her husband was stationed here for over a year with the government.  During that time I invited her to go to my camp to turkey hunt and we did for one full week.  We had a blast and you can check out our hunts.  We did not get a turkey but heard and saw them and I called up two turkeys that came running out of the woods into a field at 70 yards but took off running for the hills.

She has invited me to come and visit her and go turkey hunting and I'm looking forward to that day.  I have a Facebook friend that has made me a "new" turkey caller and I'm looking forward to getting it and practicing for the big day when we can hunt together in the hills of Tennessee.

My congrats to my friend in our great wild outdoors!  You go Girl!  I'm so proud of you!

Yes, it's a lot of fun and had not turkey hunted in a long time but that one week hunting together was the best time I had had hunting in a long time. I do hope the day comes that we can hunt together again. Thanks for coming by Lindsjo taxar! :)
