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.

Five Exotic Places To Hunt

I was contacted recently by Kate Schumer who is the Content Coordinator at Priority One Jets.  She asked me if I would like to post their article on exotic hunting and was very happy to obliged.  Anything pertaining to hunting is what my blog is all about! 

I was also asked to tell about my wildest hunt and that would be a hog hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the MS Delta.  My husband and I were invited guest and while in a stand together a big black hog came running past us.  I could not scoped it but my husband, being an Army expert marksman, shot but sadly missed.  He had another opportunity later in the year and got a really nice hog.  A hog is still on my bucket list but recovering from rt. rotator cuff surgery so I will have to wait another year.  I know I have a hog with my name on it in our great wild outdoors!  

Below are five exotic places to hunt around the world and maybe if you have the means you may want to check them out. 

Originally used as a means of survival, hunting has evolved into a favorite pastime for many. From traditional methods to modern tricks, hunters today have found new ways of capturing prey. If you are looking for a new locations with bigger and better game, consider traveling to one of these exotic locations for the excursion of a lifetime.
