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.
My Facebook friend, Mike Persichini, posted these pictures yesterday of this big tom that flies down from his roost every day and goes in front of this building to warm up in the morning sun. Mike said he also likes to stare and talk to himself in the reflection in the windows. He is the only turkey around this building and kind of strange. Wowza! What a gorgeous bird! Thanks for sharing with us, Mike!
Sunshot - Love this picture.
Mike said that this is the same tom that had ice all over him a week ago at the same building. I posted about this turkey on April 17th called, Frozen Tail Feathers!
