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.
At least I saw three nice does out of this one-man stand. They came in to the upper right hand corner in a clearing and knew I was in trouble when I saw the second one stomp and another doe was coming up behind it. The first one was closest to me but they all knew something was up by then. I had the closest one in my sites and only had the back half of it's body...so of course was not a good shot and was hoping it would move out away from the tree but one of them blew and they all took off! That was at around 8:45 this morning. It was so nice to at least see a deer and be in our great wild outdoors! My daughter had no luck at all...but next time hopefully we will both get one!
Afternoon hunt and nothing came out!
Patiently waiting on a deer!
Woods were beautiful!
...so was the moon. Deer will eat good tonight with low in the 20's!
