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.
This past Wednesday I received an e-mail from Steve Wilson, Post Sports Editor of The Vicksburg Post, for an interview. I had sent in my picture of my doe I had harvested on January 5 at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Clubthe Monday before. My husband had insisted that I send it in and I finally gave in thinking that it would be placed with the other hunters in Friday's section of, On The Hunt. I was pleasantly surprise to see a very nice write-up of my interview per Steve the next day. Below is a copy of the article that appeared on the front page of the sports section of our paper.
Many thanks to Steve who really made my day a very happy and exciting one!
