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.

A Buck Named "Joker"

Whitetail deer grow non-typical antlers for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it’s genetic, but many times it could be that the animal is injured by a car strike, a battle with a rival buck, or a hunting event.
Generally, a deer will grow a non-typical antler on the side opposite of the injury. In this case, however, the rack is so unusual that determining a cause for this occurrence is difficult. As unusual as this buck became, it evaded hunters for four years, as described in this piece from North American Whitetail. <==== (click here for full story)

Heath Buchanan's Joker looks to have far more points than the 12 ruled scorable.  As with most other cactus racks, a number of them are only a fraction of an inch in length.
