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.

A New York Youth Hunt Successful!


My Facebook friend Todd Imiola's son, Hunter, had a successful New York youth hunt this morning and shot at 6:30 a.m.  It had a 9-5/8" beard, 1-1/8" and 1-1/4" spurs.  A great looking bird and an awesome hunt in our great wild outdoors!  My congrats to a job well done young man!


Todd said that the Primos Power Crystal and Kee Kee striker once again proves to be fatal.  So sweet sounding and hard to resist. It's a well worn call but still killing them!


Hunter saying...Who's gobbling now?

An Ocellated Turkey Hunt




This is a fantastic hunt says Ryan Bassham (trophy hunter) and one of the best hunting adventures out there.  The ocellated turkey is more commonly found in the Yucatan Peninsula and northern Guatemala.  This part of the country is safe and beautiful.  An awesome opportunity to hunt the same grounds of the ancient Mayan Indians!

My congrats to all the turkey hunters above in our great wild and awesome outdoors!  Such beautiful birds!

Ron's Nice Bird!



My FB friend, Ron French of Cherryville, Oregan, recently got him a very nice bird and I wanted you to read all about it. This is his hunting story ~ My Congrats Ron!

Oregon Spring Turkey season opened last Friday, I decided to wait till after the weekend before going out and trying to find a bird an hour from home. 

Left the truck at 5 a.m. and 20 minutes later was hiking passed a patch of timber when a tom erupted off to my right about 50-60 yards. I turned my headlamp off...BUSTED! Then made a big loop and got around and above where the turkey had gobbled. It began getting light so I gave a couple of sleepy clucks and yelps...the bird blasted a gobble back at me. A raven flew over and the turkey gobbled at the raven's sqwalk. Gave him one more series of yelps and set my call down.

10 minutes later I was thinking he had hopped down and skedaddled out the back door...when I caught movement out front and slightly to the left. He came walking up to 30 yards angled out in front of me. Gave him a couple of YELP YELP's with my mouth and he stopped and stretched his noggin for a better look. 6:15 and the hunt was over!


Note:  Two year old bird with 8-8.5" beard and NO spurs at all!

M/V Charles L. Strait Passing Hometown!

Yesterday, while on my way home I stopped by the Louisiana Circle and could see a towboat coming around the bend called Delta Point. Today, I found out that towboat captains are not very fond of Delta Point or the Mississippi River bridges at my hometown of Vicksburg, MS.  

I now have an app on my phone call "FINDSHIP" and was able to see the name of the towboat before it reached where I was standing.  Before I knew about the app I had to rely on my camera to zoom in and get the name.  (Click on pictures to enlarge)
