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.

North Cornfield Afternoon Hunt

I have hunted this stand before and was excited to get another chance to go to it.  It has a beautiful view of  the fields and the hills surrounding the famous Christmas Place. Bob, my husband, killed a deer and a hog from it.  The above picture is right up against the hills where three deer soon came out. A huge doe, nice buck (took a picture) and a culled deer.  I chose not to shoot the doe and just enjoyed watching her.  She kept looking towards the front field and I'm thinking maybe a bigger buck was close by the way she was acting.  All of a sudden she and the culled deer turned and went back the way they came out and the bigger buck leaped into the tall grass and watched him disappeared.  Later, I heard the sound of a buck grunt and saw two more does.  Then a shot!  Bob was hunting the South Cornfield and shot one of six deer.  Later, saw him with the flashlight looking for it but unfortunately did not find it.  While he was looking, I barely saw three more does come out in the field and soon they were spooked by the flashlight. 

Looking out the window to the right at the grand view.  

I was pleasantly surprised to see another Bodock Tree with a fruit ball on the ground next to the stand.

A nice buck walked out.  The doe was already in front of him.  The culled deer came in behind him.

As the sun was setting the pink clouds made a beautiful curvy design in the sky.

Ms. Marian, wonderful pictures and story. The last picture is spectacular. I didn't shoot enough deer this year to make a dent in my freezer. Oh well...that's hunting!

Thanks Lindsjo taxar...yes,in MS you have a certain time you can run dogs but I would rather have a still hunt any day. I have hunted with dogs a long time ago. A member would bring his dogs and let them out and they would get the scent of a deer and run it.

DeanO - Thank you for the compliment...I love taking pictures of the outdoors. I may enter the last pix in our newspaper and see if they will published it. We have two deer so far and I hope it will hold us till next season.

Thanks for coming by you guys! :)
