A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter
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.

On A Climb
At first glance in the paper yesterday, I thought someone was climbing a mountainous terrain until I read that it was only four children racing up a hill at the construction site behind the Cedar Hill Cemetery. The picture was taken by Katie Carter of The Vicksburg Post. She said that the city is expanding the cemetery at the north end of Mission 66 roadway by 10 percent, adding space for thousands of graves that city officials say should be enough for 25 to 30 years.
