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 grandson, Michael "Ethan" Kelly will graduate this afternoon at 5:00 at the Mississippi Coliseum in Jackson. He attended Raymond High School and was a member of the ROTC for four years. He has joined the Air Force and will report either in September/October in San Antonio, TX. Terry High School will also be graduating at the coliseum after Raymond High School.
I'm so very proud of my grandson who has chosen to serve his country and wish him well as he turns another chapter in his life.
