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.

Bass & Snake
Austin and Courtney McLendon of Selma, Alabama, took their son Talan fishing in a private lake back in June. He is shown here holding a bass he caught with a snake in its mouth. He said his son stuck his hand in its mouth and felt something hit his hand and luckily he didn't get bit by the snake. The grandmother stated that he caught the bass while it was digesting the snake and it burped it up because the hook was causing pain. This is very scary and I've never seen or heard of anything like this before. Just a word of caution to all fishermen in our great wild/crazy outdoors.
