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.

Fireworks Held After Storm
After my grandson and I were headed to town to watch the fireworks, everyone was leaving town because of the lightening, thunder and rain. We decided to asked a policeman who was directing traffic if it was cancelled and he said it was. We came on back home. After getting today's afternoon paper, I saw where it was held after the rain let up and was only delayed about 15 minutes. Oh well, maybe next year I'll try again. Came home and watched the New York's celebration on TV and it was beautiful!
