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.

Robin's "Fill The Freezer" Buck!

Robin's (a.k.a. Ms. Grit) hunting story in her own words...

I usually try to hold myself to 8 points or better, as good as or better than my last buck and if I need meat, I'll shoot a doe.  However, I've had no mature does in front of me in over 2 months until yesterday when my muzzle loader miss-fired. Mike (my son) is coming home from college for Christmas break next week and wants every kind of venison meal you can imagine and my venison freezer is down to several packages of chop meat, 2 packages of sausage and a few back-straps, so when this guy stepped in front of me yesterday afternoon, my thoughts were simple, FILL THE FREEZER!!  With a double lung shot, from  my muzzle loader, he went 80 yards into the thickest, nastiest multi-flora you could imagine, crossing 2 small streams and if it weren't for help, I never would have found him or gotten him out of there as there wasn't a drop of blood found until the spot where he expired, but I heard him crash, so I had a general idea of where to search.  It feels good to have the monkey off my back and the curse broken!  :)  Robin, how well all hunters can agree on your last statement!  My congrats to you on getting your deer in our great wild outdoors!
