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.
Thousands of people lined the streets of downtown Vicksburg to see our Super Bowl hero ride past on a float during the Malcolm Butler Homecoming Parade. The New England Patriots corner-back, a Vicksburg native, said that "It's been real crazy. Life changed real fast. The whole world seen what I did, so it's supposed to change that fast," He said that he has been busy a lot. A lot of phone calls. Less rest. Not getting as much sleep as he normally gets. It's been bad in a good way, so everything's good." Butler's next play is to build on his success. My congrats to Malcolm Butler and wish him all the luck that he deserves. Below are some pictures I took of the parade yesterday in my hometown.
