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.

First Time Hunter Hooked!
Jason Nicholas' son got his very first deer yester-day morning. He spotted the deer and shot him like a seasoned pro, he said. The best part was that after he shot, he got a bad case of the Elvis Presley legs and couldn't even stand up. How I know that feeling! He is now hooked for life and another hunter is born. Check out that smile on his face and his shot placement! Priceless! Congratulations to this young hunter in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors.
