Amazing photo captures the moment a firefighter rescues a fawn from a nearly 100,000-acre wildfire roaring through Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge.
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.

I'm giving a shout-out to my son-in-law, Stan Bryant, who will be playing tomorrow night at The Big Muddy here in my hometown of Vicksburg, MS. Stan plays the guitar and I wish I could be there for his first-time performance but had made reservations to go to our annual Saint Francis/St. Aloysius Banquet at the same time frame. It will be 58 years for our graduating Class of 1959! I really hate to miss this but hopefully, next time when his band plays, I will be able to go. Info below for the event.

I went by the Mississippi Visitors Center this morning and saw a towboat northbound by my app FINDSHIP that it was the M/V Steve E Bryan.
A huge tow...
...coming under the bridges.
I-20 on the left and old Hwy 80 on the right.
Cannons on the overlook lawn at the Mississippi Visitor Center in my Civil War hometown of Vicksburg, MS.
Before I went by the MS Visitor Center, I stopped by the Louisiana Circle and saw the M/V Robert L Posey southbound towards the bridges.
M/V Robert L Posey southbound with loaded containers heading to it's destination. Safe travels to both towboats on the Mighty Mississippi River.
Ally, granddaughter of Kenny and Suzanne Byrd of Edinburg, MS, recently caught her a fish in the family pond. She caught it on her pink fishing pole and looks like she is really enjoying herself with that priceless smile. Congratulations to Ally in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!
