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.

Bring In The Helicopters!
My friend and mentor, Rex Howell, (Deer Camp Blog) is planning his Annual Hog Hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club (on the edge of the MS Delta) next weekend Feb. 27 - Mar 1. I think he should bring in the helicopters to help eradicate these nasty ole disgusting (good eaten) hogs. When I killed my two hogs there last month it was twelve out in a big opened field and I'm sure it's 20 times more on the hunting grounds. Good luck to all the hog hunters attending in getting the job done in our great wild outdoors!
