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.

Virginia's First Hunt

Chuck Stogdill of Oskaloosa, Iowa said that Tuesday his wife, Virginia shot her first kill ever. 

She wasn't raised around guns and has always feared them because of the lack of gun education, he said. He finally got a gun in her hands this past weekend and started her target shooting. She went hunting for the first time and with one shot got this rabbit.

Someone commented that you have nothing to fear but fear itself. Now you will be able to feed yourself and your family if the need arises.  But Chuck now says he fears a woman who knows how to shoot a gun!!!

Congratulations to Virginia in our great wild and wonderful outdoors.  Now you are a be very proud of yourself!
