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.

She's Back In Town
Yesterday after our grandson's graduation from St. Aloysius at the Vicksburg Convention Center, we drove only a few blocks to see the American Queen Steamboat docked at the city waterfront. Buses were being loaded for tour trips to the Vicksburg National Military Park and some went walking downtown after climbing a hill. I hope they also got to go by the Vicksburg Farmer's Market that was from 8:00 to 11:00. Downtown was really packed with all the activities going on.
