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.
This past Tuesday a group of seniors from the Vicksburg Senior Center with Vicksburg Mayor Flaggs, Alderman Mayfield, Lt. Milton Moore of the Police Department and TV23, made a trip to The Onward Store on Highway 61 North to eat lunch. This was our first time to take the "new" City of Vicksburg bus on a fun trip and we all had a wonderful time.
