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.

A Foggy Sunday Morning Hunt

Silhouette of the tripod (Arrowhead Stand) I was getting ready to climb into.

It was a very foggy Sunday morning as Mark (hog-wild mailrider) took me on the 4-wheeler and dropped me off at the Arrowhead Stand.  I have seen a lot of deer off of this stand and even a hog.  Last season, just as I got on my stand, the hog came through at 30 yards to my left walking through the woods and did not have my rifle loaded yet.  

Mark said he would pick me up around 9:00 so I got down about 8:55 and as I was getting ready to walk out a deer blew at me but never saw it!  Got to the top of the hill near the road and another deer blew at me and saw it run off.  It was a beautiful morning hunting in the fog and below are some pictures I took of one of my favorite hunting spots.

Trying to take pictures of the ducks flying overhead but to no avail.

Fog lifting somewhat in the top field.

Looking up towards the road...a nice long walk.

Main road heading back to camp.

Main road going to other stands on the property.  

Brad and Brandon came by while I was waiting for Mark and they had seen some does but did not get a shot.  Mark was about 30 mins. late picking me up - You don't want to keep a girl waiting!  All kidding aside, it was great to see Mark again and appreciated him getting me to and from my stands and taking a picture of me with my doe.  Many thanks Mark!
