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.

Alaskan Brown Bear
Bow hunter Juan Garcia and Master Guild Sam Fejes, go into the isolated wilderness of Kodiak Island, Alaska. They are in pursuit of the largest land predator on earth.
Feel the intensity as Sam uses a predator call to lure a gigantic brown bear to within 12 yards of Juan's PSE Omen Max. Putting themselves into a calculated risk. Sam and Juan maintain their composure as the bear approaches. Producer and cameraman, Jake Latendresse, sits back from 20 yards away capturing the entire event as it unfolds. Its intense, dramatic, rare and special...in fact, its unbelievable!
Special thanks to Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge for allowing us to film, but more importantly, thanks to them for their vision into the management system they have applied to enhance bear conservation. Since the establishment of KNWR, the brown bear population has doubled in size, strongly led by the implementation of hunting as a tool to control the nature male bear density. As a result, young bears thrive and have better opportunity to reach maturity.
