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.

LA Black Bear Killed In Vehicle Crash
Rosa Robinson of Woodville stuck the bear going southbound on U. S. 61 in her 2001 Chevy Suburban wagon.
The Natchez Democrat reported she fatally struck the full-grown male bear on April 5. No other serious injuries were reported. Official say the bear weighed 468, making it the largest ever recorded in Mississippi.
The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks Black Bear Program leader Richard Rummel says the bear's body is currently being stored in a freezer at the Mississippi Museum of Natural History in Jackson, MS.
Rummel says the department is currently evaluating the preservation of the bear, but it will eventually be used for education purposes.
Officials say the bear was in excellent condition when it died, so a full-mount of the bear might be possible.
