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.

Kristine's New Blog
Kristine of our Outdoor Bloggers Summit (OBS), recently started a new blog called Tenderfoot Diaries. She said she has always been an indoor girl and a book worn of sorts. Her biological Dad made her take walks and ride her bike while he ran, but she never found that much fun, in fact she saw it more as a punishment. She wanted to be inside where she could read and write and dream. Outside there was bugs and sun and it was either too hot or too cold. Inside just seemed easier. Her mom soon remarried and her new Dad loves all things outdoors. He taught her how to fish and he influenced her in many ways in being outdoors and having fun, without all the pressure. Go over and wish Kristine good luck with her new blog and be sure to check out her story, "Indoor Girl's Outdoor Dad." This is charming, just charming!
