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.

An Afternoon Hunt!
Rifle season opened up yesterday here in Mississippi and have been invited to hunt on my granddaughter's land south of town this afternoon. I'm looking forward to getting on my deer stand and hunt hard. I wish the weather was more cooperative because it's predicted to be near 79 degrees with winds 10-15 miles. Singing, The Deer Song, to get me going! Wishing all hunters a very successful hunting season in our great outdoors!
