Joe Bottino’s had a picture in the paper on Monday of three geese and a mallard walking towards one of the two ponds in his pasture on Goodrum Road here in Vicksburg. “That’s not an ugly duckling; that’s a pretty mallard,” Joe said. All four are males and he is looking for a female to keep them company, but has not been able to find one yet in our great wild outdoors! Charming, Just Charming!

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.
