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.

The 3rd Annual Hog Hunt is being held at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the MS Delta this weekend. As Rex (Deer Camp Blog) puts it, the camp is surrounded by these nasty crazy hogs and are attacking anything that moves. The guys are up there now trying to eradicate some of them with bullets and whiskey! Thought I would post a hog hunt with bows which is very hard to do. I would have to use my .270 to get one. I almost came close to getting a hog in December 2011 while deer hunting. I walked in to the Arrowhead stand and as soon as I sat down I heard a noise in the woods and it was a hog! I lost my chance that time but hope to have a hog hanging at the pole this year with my name on it.
