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.

Deer Story

Here I am back in the early 90's telling Fred Harris (deceased) about my deer that I shot.  I believe on this particular hunt he let me shoot his doe for meat.  He was a very special hunting friend and the nicest guy you would ever want to meet and is sadly missed.

  1. The optimum time to begin scouting for your forthcoming deer months are as soon as the present deer season finishes. You ought to get in the forest, ideally when there's still snow on the floor, and begin searching for heavily used deer trails, waste, as well as antler sheds. The greater evidence you discover inside a particular area, the greater the possibilities that deer frequent the region regularly.
