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.

Ring Deer Camp

I went deer hunting on Monday, December 8, 2014 (also, my sister Laura's 72nd Birthday) and captured this beautiful picture of a young doe eating around 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon at the Ring family property south of town.  It was the first time I had been hunting in over a year because of surgery on my rt. shoulder. Thirty-minutes later Mama doe came out to feed.  It was really enjoyable to be in the woods and get to see deer again in our great wild outdoors.
