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 had a late start on my afternoon hunt because I had to lay down and take a much needed nap. I don't sleep well the first night anywhere I go, so while the guys were watching Ole Miss and Pittsburgh play football in the BBVA Compass Bowl, which they won, I laid down for a couple of hours. It was about 3:30 when Mark and I left to go to the North Cornfield Stand in the gator to hunt together with a light rain falling. We were not in the stand five to ten minutes when a turkey came out, a fawn, does and three small bucks. Could not believe it. Below are some pictures I took while on the deer stand.

I believe this may have been the doe I shot at since it was the closest at 123 yards.
So proud and thankful for my 120 lb. doe and to Mark for taking my picture!
