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.

Deer Crashes Into Coffee Shop

KINGSTON, NY - Wait in line, bucko!
A young deer burst through the front door of Hudson Coffee Traders Tuesday morning, shattering the glass and halting everyone's daily grind while authorities attempted to wrangle the beast.
"As soon as it happened, I was in shock," said employee Jenna Shaffer.
The young deer crashed through the Uptown coffee shop at about 7 a.m., according to shop owner Donna Brooks. Patrons looking for their daily pick-me-up quickly picked up their belongings and headed outside.
Inside, the doe hung out near the back of the shop and stayed fairly sedate until animal control and Kingston police arrived about a half hour later. Animal control officials were able to wrangle it in safely, and no one was hurt.
By noon, repairmen were already installing a new glass door and patrons were getting caught up with their java-fix at the popular coffee spot for attorneys, judges and county employees. Kingston police say they brought the deer into a patrol truck and released it back into the wild.
"We're a very popular coffee shop; we've extended to the wildlife," Brooks said.
