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.

Amelia Island Plantation


On April 3,1988, Bob and I got married on an Easter Sunday evening.  A few days later we flew to Jacksonville, FL, to Amelia Island Plantation.  We had a wonderful time and had planned to ride the horses in the ocean.  Bob had set up the appointment and after arriving at the stables, we found out that you could not weigh 200lbs., or over. They told me I could ride...but he could not.  What a disappointment! So we came back to the resort and Bob made a complaint to the management that we were not told that upfront. So, to make it all better, we were invited to a very exclusive restaurant with a five course meal. Sometimes things work out for the best and it cost more to eat than to ride the horses.  Below is a picture someone took of us at the airport on our way to Florida for our honeymoon.  

Today's our 24th Wedding Anniversary!
