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.

Public Enemy Number One!
Jarratt Hahn, a law enforcement officer, has been having a great year trying to trap and kill these nasty hogs between his land and his neighbors. Jarratt lives in White Sand, Mississippi and caught over 150. Here are a few photos taken this year and commented that it still doesn't look like he put a dent in the population.
Hogs are all over Mississippi and they tear up gardens, food plots, and crops. They are very hearty aminals and very resilient. They multiply like mosquitoes.
Jim Walker with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks describes them as "public enemy number one."
Congrats to Jarratt in trying to eradicate these annoying hogs in our great wild Mississippi outdoors.
