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.

Jammin' On The River
Riverfest 2010 in Vicksburg, MS. This is an annual spring event that will kick off downtown at 6:00. On Saturday is the arts and crafts show which is back for the 42nd year. It's going to be a lot of country, blues, rock, bluegrass and R&B that will blast from the South Stage and should be close to 4 to 6,000 in attendance each night. Tonight will feature country music singer Jason Michael Carroll and Saturday night will feature blues and R&B artist J. Blackfoot. To make things really nice is that our dear friends from Water Valley, Rex (Deer Camp Blog) and Denise will be joining us for a fun stompin and eatin weekend. We are so looking forward to their visit to our river city. Charming, Just Charming!
