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.

Water Valley Bound
Bob and I have been invited by Rex over at Deer Camp Blog to come to their annual Watermelon Carnival in his hometown of Water Valley, MS. This will be our second trip to Water Valley and the first one being when Rex turned the "BIG 50" two years ago. Bob is a sculptor and has been making copper trees for awhile now and Rex is giving him this opportunity to help him sell his copper trees at the carnival. We are looking forward to our visit and being with our dear friends from Water Valley. I will be out-of-pocket till next Tuesday and when I come back will share with you pictures of our adventures. Until then...
