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.
My step-granddaughter, Laura Phillips, who attends St. Aloysius High School, played in the Mississippi High School Activities Association (MHSAA) state girls' golf tournament at Canton Country Club this past Monday. St. Al is second in the Class I tournament with a team score of 200, just four strokes off the pace of tournament-leading St. Patrick. Laura Phillips led the Lady Flashes with a 96. Anna Fletcher shot a 104 and Beth Newman carded a 108 for St. Al. Tuesday and today St. Al tournament is being held at Tupelo, Mississippi.
Bob and I are so proud of Laura and wishing her the very best of luck playing golf. She could possibly be a pro one day! Our congrats Laura!
