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.

Four Feet Off The Ground!

My Facebook friend, Mike Persihini took this picture of a buck that can fly!  All of 4 feet of the ground and the Goldron Rod is over 4 feet tall, he said.  What a great picture of a "whitetail" deer in our great wild outdoors!

The driver went to sleep. Local thugs surrounded his truck and started robbing while everyone was sleeping. Where was the police? This is insane. We need to stop gangs and thugs!

The elusive bobcat!

I was fortunate to see a bobcat while in a tripod stand deer hunting!  I was only able to take one shot with my camera and he was gone like a scalded cat! (click on picture to enlarge)
