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.

Malakai Cruse & Family
My two hunting buddies over at Hunting Reviews, Ralph and Jason, posted last Wednesday about their best friend and hunting buddy, Josh Cruse's son, Malakai. He was born with Biliary Atresia. BA is when the bile duct between the liver and the small intestine is blocked or absent. He had his first surgery on November 6, 2008 to temporarily fix the problem. During a five week hospital stay for ascites, Malakai was put on the transplant list on March 20. He received his liver transplant May 12, 2009 at Children's Hospital in St. Louis. He is currently recovering well, but the day to day scares of infection are still occurring. It's been up and down for the Cruse Family. The hospital bills are starting to come in and a lot of it will be out of pocket. They have been without every day wages for many months now. Ralph said that the surgeries has been very difficult on the family and anything we can give would help. Please visit the family blog at http://crusekids.blogspot.com and DONATE anything you can. If you cannot donate, please keep them in your prayers. Thank you!
