The Vicksburg Post invites all hunters to submit photographs of wildlife they have harvested. You have to include the location of the hunt, what type of weapon, how long the shot was, weight of the deer. If it's a buck you have to include information on rack length, width and points. Above is the first one published in our paper yesterday and is of Vicksburg resident Nathan Trim, 9, who bagged this 8-point buck while hunting with his grandfather, Henry Trim, in Claiborne County on October. 2. Nathan is the son of Ricky and Mary Trim. My congrats to Nathan who has gotten off to a great hunting season already and our great outdoors! Charming, Just Charming!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

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.
