Vicksburg resident Matthew Bingham, left, bagged two turkeys while hunting with his friend Daniel Flowers, right, on Sunday. Bingham's first bird was a three-bearded gobbler with 1-inch long spurs. It weighed 21-1/2 pounds and the three beards measured a total of 22-1/2 inches. His second turkey was a 19-pounder with an 8-1/4inch beard and 7/8-inch long spurs.
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

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.
