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.

Jones County Buck

Jerry A. Wade of Laurel, MS, said this was the best deer he ever got in Jones County, MS. 

It was a lucky day with a 175 yard shot and sat back patted himself on the back. Picked up his binoculars and to his surprise he was still standing, turning his head looking around!  He grabbed his gun back up and gave him another shot and didn't miss that time.  He said the hunting angels smiled down on him! 

There was a smaller racked buck and doe to his left and guessed he was watching them.  He had seen this particular buck before and had a couple pictures on his trail cam.  It was chasing does everywhere that evening and got him off of Hwy 11 North of Laurel in a big hayfield. 

My congrats to Jerry on a very nice buck in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!
