Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

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.

Paddle Boarding Down This Mississippi

There was an interesting story in last night's paper of brothers, Andy and Dave Cornthwaite, both from London, England, paddle boarding through Vicksburg on the Mississippi River this past Thursday.  Dave Cornthwaite is on a mission to break the world record for the longest distance paddle on a stand up board. He began his trip in Elk Lake, Minn., June 19 and hopes to finish September 7. At the end of the trip, we will have paddled 2,400 miles and is hoping to raise $1.6 million for the AV Foundation, a nonprofit organization that works toward a goal of clean drinking water for sub-Saharan African schools, and a breast cancer awareness charity.  You can check out more information on this at Facebook.com/expedition1000.  Good luck guys and be safe!
