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.

Marian Is Snowed In
Word from the Washington area was that about 2 feet of snow had fallen over the Christmas break. Marian is probably snowed in till Spring. In the south we love snow as long as it is gone in a couple of days but 2 feet is ridiculous. You are not even allowed to hunt here if the snow is too deep.
Here is a pic of Marian and your friendly neighborhood blogger relaxing at the Christmas Place in front of the fire. Hope she will make it back for a last hunt or at least for the end of year Great Hog Hunt.
