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.

I was so excited to open up today's Sunday paper and see a picture that I submitted to The Vicksburg Post for publication. I had emailed it in about two weeks ago and when it did not appear in last Sunday's paper, I thought, maybe next time. It took me about 6 tries to finally get this one shot. Of course, by the time I click the picture it had flown away and as the saying goes...busy as a bee! I enjoy taking pictures and have been fortunate to have had several published. It's a good feeling to know your photography is worthy of being shared with the readers of my hometown of Vicksburg.
