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.

An Act Of Kindness
Jacqueline a farmer and beekeeper of a tiny village of Washington state said that on this particular morning they went up to check on the newborn calf. Mama was waiting by the fence for us and she immediately walked off mooing. Normally that would make the calf stick his head up from the hiding place she'd left him in but no head appeared. So Joseph, our friend Rick and I all started walking the grid. The guys did inside the fence, I went outside into the hay field. A calf lies flat to the ground and you could be six feet away and easily miss seeing him nestled behind some tufts of grass. Really. Yes, we did find him and reunited mama and baby boy. Listen to the incredibly grateful thank-you moo she gives us once they're back together.
