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.

Rick Small's Perfect Shot!

Rick Small Photography

I was in the middle of trying to get a decent shot of this buck with his head raised, looking at least partially in my direction, and out of the tall weeds, but... I was not having much luck.... All of a sudden, with no warning at all, he took off on a flat out run directly towards me, veering off to my right at the last second.... I literally felt the wind off his passing by so close!!!! Had me a little shook up until I realized that he was only going after a doe that had shown up behind me...... He could've cared less that I was there, but I'm sure he probably got a good laugh out of the look I had on my face as he was barreling straight toward me, that is if they can do such a thing... I swear I have seen a smile/smirk on their faces, on many occasions, after they have startled me..... Anyway I hope y'all enjoy and, as usual, sharing and comments/questions are encouraged and appreciated.
