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.

Benefits Of Harvesting & Eating Venison
One of the greatest pleasures that deer hunting brings is the satisfaction of feeding the ones you love with the meat from the hunt. Filling the freezer with the meat from just one harvested deer could feed the family for months, or even a year which makes it a cost effective and convenient source of food. There are many reasons to harvest and eat venison. This detailed info-graphic created by GOODGAMEHUNTING showcases the many benefits of hunting deer and eating this tasty red meat and also compares how these benefits stack up against eating store bought beef. As the graphic highlights; venison is organic and natural, very healthy, and contains half the fat of beef when comparing similar cuts of the meat. It's no wonder why many consider venison the ultimate red meat.
