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.

Mike's 8-pt. Swamp Buck



My Facebook friend, Mike Snow, harvested a very nice swamp buck recently.  He said that the deer had been monitored by camera for the past three years and two years ago the buck had a lot more mass.  It had a 19-1/2 inch spread and was the first time he had ever seen him in daylight hours and the last!  His ruff score was 130. The buck was 6 years of age and said this is a good deer in his area where he hunts the Pearl River swamp in Neshoba County. He used his 45-70 H&R long barrel with a Nikon scope (3-1/3 by 10 by 50) to bring him down.

My congrats to Mike on a fine 8 point swamp buck taken in our great wild outdoors!
