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.

Bob Coming To Pick Me Up!


I was hunting on Jerry Dykes (now deceased) deer stand on the bar near the MS River and was waiting for Bob to come and pick me up.  I love this picture that I took with my camera of him coming to get me in our suburban back in the late 80's or early 90's.  We were hunting on Kings Point Island at Brown's Point Hunting Club at the time.  I have a lot of wonderful memories of our hunting adventures at this deer camp.  It was one of my favorite camps to go to and at the time we belonged to three camps.  Brown's Point is still an active camp but we no longer belong because of the fees being so high and got out about 15 years ago.  Greg, my step-son, is still a member of the camp.  In October of 2010, Bob and I revisited the camp together and was a very emotional and great trip.  Recently, Bob and Greg got to hunt together and it was a good father/son hunt even though they did not get a deer.  They did see deer but was too far away for a good shot.
