I had a recent comment from Cyndi about the video that I posted on Tuesday where the elk calf that was dancing in a wallow. She said that this video was actually filmed by her brother David Neils in Colorado. He has a trail cam set up in the woods and the elk frequent this wallow quite a bit. He even has a really funny video of 3 elk calves playing around, all trying to get a chance to play and soak in the wallow. This particular video was taken 4 weeks ago. You can see this video and other videos of nature at his website at: http://offthepavement.com/. She also said that her brother sure loves the outdoors and she really enjoy being able to see the incredible wildlife that he captures on film. David's hobbies are wildlife photography, bowhunting, woodworking, hiking and kayaking. He is also a mentoring program director who launched the International Telementor Program in 1995 and you can check out his website at: http://telementor.org/. Thanks to David for capturing wildlife in our great wild outdoors and the great support he gives in mentoring our professional adults and students.
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.
