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.

Newborn Fawn Rescued
Last month these two men heard a distress call from a fawn while working and went to investigate. Saw the mother standing on the edge of Lake Oconee in Georgia where they found this newborn fawn hopelessly tangled in the vines in the water. It's brother was also in the water about ten yards away and was able to be rescued as well. Both fawns were warmed up and stabilized before being led back into the woods to be reunited with their mother. A very happy ending and a big thank you to the guys that rescued them in our great wild outdoors!
