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.

Kareen's Hog #139

My Facebook friend, Kareen Beinhauer of Alpine, TX is starting the year off killing hog #3 of #139.  Below is the story of her hog kill last night. 

I was out by 6:32. I was going to put my corn out earlier but the horses were there so I waited until I went out later. They were still there so I went up the hill in the horse trap and whistled them up there and put out some deer feed and hoped they would stay up top. I got my corn put out and settled in. Of course, the deer and javelinas were there. Finally, there was one javelina left and I could see a deer moving around. All of a sudden they ran off and there he was. That hog that was on the game camera! My pulse went through the roof because I was excited to see a hog. I ever so slowly put my earplugs in and quietly took the safety off. I wasn't sure if I could hit him because he was not triggering the lights all that well. But when the light came back on, I took my shot which I also wondered if I should do since he was facing me. Dropped him like a bad habit and I watched him make sure he would not be getting up but he was done. He was a little bigger than I thought so I was super happy! I am also dedicating him to John Neill, Roy's brother-in-law because he always gets such a kick out of my silly hunting stories. More pics below of #139!

Congratulations to my Facebook friend!  Proud of you, Kareen!
