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.

Happy Birthday Ethan
Today is my grandson's Michael "Ethan" Kelly's birthday. He is 15 years old. He is into "real" cars now and wants to get his driver's permit. Ethan is also a counselor in training at the Y.M.C.A. here in Vicksburg. Ethan was promoted to the 10 grade and participates in the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps at Raymond High School in Raymond, MS. It is a high possibility that Ethan will be transferring to Vicksburg High School in the fall and continue with the AFJROTC Program. Vicksburg High is only two blocks from our home. That would be a sweetthing! He is also an avid deer hunter and is looking forward in November to Rex's Annual Youth Weekend Hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club in the MS Delta. Wishing Ethan the very best in whatever life has to offer him. Grandpa Bob and I love you very, very much! Gran Gran
