My first 8-point taken on New Year's Eve '89

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.

Gone Hunting

Will be hunting this weekend at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club.  Looking forward to seeing my hunting buddies and enjoying the hunt and taking pictures.  Took this picture while hog hunting there about 7 or 8 years ago!  Wish me luck!

Bucky & Mike

I love this picture of Mike's special deer friend, Bucky!  My Facebook friend, Mike Persichini, takes the most awesome pictures of deer that I have ever seen.  He lives in the State of Michigan.

#CountYourBlessings


Ever wonder why an oak tree drops acorns right at the time when the deer browse has decreased and lost nutritional value and at a time when deer need fat producing food to make the upcoming winter and breeding season? Ever wonder why the doe fawns in the spring when the vegetation is lush to provide cover and food for the doe that's nursing? Ever wonder why there's so much order in nature? Gene...sis 1:31 says "God saw all that he had made, and it was very good." Maybe this is why we are drawn to the woods so strongly. If The Creator of it all was pleased, its no wonder we look at it with so much amazement! I love being in the woods whether I'm working or hunting. I'm so thankful I spend time in nature that I do. #countyourblessongs  by Dana Sanders
