My doe laying in the field at 85 yards while in the Dove Field stand.
I was so fortunate to be able to go to the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the Mississippi Delta this past weekend for a deer hunt. The camp is 2,500 acres with a 40 acre lake and the most beautiful place on earth to hunt. It has been almost three years since I have not killed a deer because of rota-tor cuff surgery. Last January was able to go and killed a 180 lb. sow and a smaller one running...all on my bucket list for awhile. I was so anxious to get a deer after so long a time.
I was invited by my blogging hunting friend and mentor, Rex Howell (Deer Camp Blog) at the family deer camp which is located about an hour and fifteen minutes from my home of Vicksburg, MS.
I hunted the Arrowhead stand Saturday morning but have seen a lot of deer from this stand and killed several.

A hog wallow walking out from the Arrowhead stand Saturday morning and have seen a hog off of this stand a few years ago.
Rex took this picture of me with my doe.

I look forward to the campfires!
Hunting under the Sneaky stand on a very cold Sunday morning but saw nothing.
Walking back to camp after my hunt. Took this picture of a perfect Christmas tree at the Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club.
Noticed to the left side of the road a rusty old car.
I'm looking forward to a return hunt soon to get a hog at the camp. Many thanks to my friend, Rex, for an unforgettable hunt in our great wild outdoors.
