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.

A National Selfie Day Pix

My selfie taken in the Taj Mahal stand at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the Mississippi Delta on December 27, 2011.  It was a very cold and windy day in our great wild and wonderful outdoors!

Where To Shoot

I made a frontal shot on an 8-point buck that came towards me and went around my stand and fell over dead. The only shot I had and have it proudly mounted.  My 8-point buck above is my blog photo in our great wild and wonderful outdoors.
