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 Long Ways Off Turkey
My long time CamoSpace friend and now Facebook friend, Mike Johnson, called in a nice gobbler and dusted him with his 12 gauge 870 Remington using a 3" mag Remington express, 5 shot turkey load. He got his turkey back on May 15, 2010. He said it was the first turkey that he actually called in from a long ways off (like 300 yards) all on his own running and gunning way out in a big swamp woods. He actually was about half lost when he called him in and shot him and had to figure out how the heck to get back out based on listening to noise from the highway that he knew was about a mile east of him. What an adventure in our great wild outdoors for Mike! A turkey hunt he will always remember.
