I was so surprised today when I received my paper and saw my picture of the sunset in color on the front page bottom right hand corner of our hometown paper. I took it on July 19 and was lucky to get this shot of the sun setting at a gas station at the Mississippi River. I have been very lucky to have my pictures published before but usually on the 3rd page in black and white. Many thanks to The Vicksburg Post for putting it on the front page...a first!
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.
