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.

My Facebook friend, Mike Persichini named this deer, Big 8. He said that Big 8 had a stick that was jammed into his leg during the rut. His leg swelled up real bad and he shed early. The stick broke off but part stayed in his leg. The swelling finally broke open and the rest of the stick fell out. He is on his way back to normal! It is amazing how wild animals can adapt to injuries in the wild.

8. Sunday morning, I woke up at 2 am.
9. I put on my camo, loaded my pack, set out for my stand.
10. This was destined to be an "Epic" hunt.
11. As I approached my deer stand, I called my wife and told her I had decided not to hunt on the Sabbath and would meet her at church.
