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 Bedded Down Buck

My Facebook friend, Mike Persihini walked up on a bedded buck yesterday while walking through a field and took one look and he was gone.  Here are some amazing photos of his flying get-a-way.  

In my hunting lifetime, I have actually walked up on two does while walking through the woods bedded down and it frightened me as much as it did them.  

I had no camera at the time to take a deer flying through the air but Mike was ready.  Great hind shot of a "whitetail" deer!

The Golden Rod was over 4 feet tall, he said.  Amazing photographs in the great wild outdoors of Michigan!  Thanks for sharing your pictures with us, Mike.
