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.

Food For Thought - Group Of Wolves

The three in front are old and sick, they walk in front to set the pace of the running group lest they get left behind.

The next five are the strongest and best, they are tasked to protect the front side if there is an attack.

The pack in the middle are always protected from any attack.

The five behind them are also among the strongest and best; they are tasked to protect the back side if there is an attack.

The last one is the LEADER.  He ensures that no one is left behind.  He keeps ready to run in any direction to protect and serves as the 'bodyguard' to the entire group.

Just in case anyone wanted to know what it really means to be a leader.  It's not about being out front.  It means taking care of the team.

Deer Watching Me!

The picture I took of deer looking at me near Lake Travis, TX, a couple of weeks ago while visiting a formal classmate.
