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.

An Awesome Buck

I'm really looking forward to hunting season since I was shot out last season with shoulder surgery.  Maybe I might see a nice buck like this one to make up for lost time!  Heck, I would be happy to get a doe or two at this point.  I really need meat in my freezer. Wishing all you hunters out there in Blogland a good hunting season!
