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.

According to the Father of this little girl they were unpacking the car from a canoe trip when this fawn stumbled across their front yard and into Maya's arms. The fawn had a good sense about Maya and followed her every step. They are inseparable from the moment they met. Maya knew it needed is mother, who believed was off eating and recuperating from the birthing, so she led it back to the woods until is finally hunkered down. They have not seen the fawn since.
An update: Saw two two does and two fawns in the neighbors yard and then again a fawn and doe in their backyard the same day so they are pretty certain that she was found. Everyone please take a breath!
What a touching deer story in our great wild outdoors!
