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.

Racetrack - Horses vs. Deer

Saw an article in yesterday's paper about an announcer playing along with racing deer.  As the story goes, spectators came to watch horses at a western Pennsylvania racetrack and got a surprise last week when three deer got onto the course first and beat the horses to racing.

A race was about to begin Wednesday night at the Meadows Racetrack in Washington County when the deer jumped onto the track.

Race announcer Roger Huston didn't miss a beat.  He began calling the race as it unfolded, saying things like: "As they race down the track, Bambi has the lead. Here comes Rudolph from the outside.":

The deer ran fast but kept changing directions.  At one point, they appeared headed to the paddock, where the horses were being held.  Several minutes into the show, the deer decided to leave the track to the horses.

That would have been an entertaining moment prior to the main event. :)
