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.

Bo's Lucky Pig!
Bo, who finally got his pig last night according to my Facebook friend, Jeff Hunt, his Dad. He said it will be a good eating sow weighing in at 100 pounds. Red, the dog, saved them again on the recovery. Notice the bell on Red's collar. I had a similar experience when I shot a buck and could not find it and a dog was sent from another camp to look for my deer and luckily it was found. He also had a bell on him and did not bark until he was at the buck. What in the world would we do without dogs in our lives? I'm so happy for Bo on his hog hunt. Red was a good dog to find it so we could get this great picture of Bo proudly smiling and showing off his harvest in our great wild outdoors. Congrats Bo!
