Bradlee Ross, 9, shot this 8-point, 205-pound buck on January 17 on private land in Southern Warren County. Its rack had a 16 1/4-inch spread with a 21-inch main beam. Bradlee is the son of Jon and Jennifer Ross. My congrats to Bradlee with a nice 8-point buck. Way to go Bradlee!
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.

Youth On The Hunt
Keione Mellon, 11, bagged his first turkey last Sunday while hunting at Goat Hill Hunting Club with family friend Andy Freeney, left, and great uncle Allen Shiers. The gobbler weighed 18 pounds and had a 9 1/2-inch beard. Mellon is the son of Stacy Shiers and the grandson of Eddie and Debbie Shiers. Congrat to Keione for getting his very first turkey in the great outdoors.
