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.

Two Deer Held Captive!

I read this in the news this week where a West Virginia man was charged with holding two deer captive inside his home, according to the state's Natural Resources Police.

According to police, two officers were on their way Saturday to boat patrol duties in Cabell County, in the western part of the state, when they received a complaint of deer being kept inside a home.

Officers responding to the home found two bucks inside, where they had been living for "at least a year."

The male occupant of the home was charged and prosecution is pending, according to the statement by police.  The deer were set free.

In West Virginia, it is illegal to confine wildlife or secure them in an area where they are not able to roam free or come and go as they please, according to the agency.
