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.

Off To A Good Start

We got to the famous Christmas Place and Hunting Club on the edge of the MS Delta around 4:30 and just missed Spencer (Rex's son) heading to the Levee Stand where he shot this very nice 10 point buck.  Way to go Spencer!  It's been awhile since he has gotten a buck and you can see that getting on a stand late you still have a great chance of getting a deer.  Also, Brandon got a nice doe so we were off to a great weekend at the camp.  My congrats to Spencer and Brandon in our great outdoors!

My Rainy Morning Hunt:

My first hunt at camp was on the Game Warden Stand.  This stand is right up against a wildlife refuge and you drive by the Game Warden quarters to get to it. Rex drove me in his vehicle because it was raining and dropped me off at dark-thirty.  I walked across a big field and climb up the ladder to settle in and hopefully get a deer or hog.  Saw the sun trying to peak through the morning clouds at one time but it started raining a good bit and never saw anything off of the stand. About 9:25 I got down walked down the road hunting when I met Rex and Mark coming to pick me up.  I have seen deer off of it only during a youth hunt and across at the refuge where you could not hunt and see boatload of deer walking out.  Also, one other time Bob and I hunted together in this stand and saw a big black hog running down the road through the brush and he shot at it and missed. Below are some pictures I took while on my first hunt Saturday morning.

Looking towards the refuge in the distance as daylight was breaking.

More rain coming down and you can see the hog wallow to the left.
Rain Rain go away come again another day!

Got this neat shot of rain drops on a branch out the right side window.

Took a picture of the Game Warden Stand as I was leaving.

A long (football) field looking to the left and ... the right.  Too bad I did not see anything off of it.
