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.

Conner's First Rat
Drew Ellis of Purvis, Mississippi said that his son Conner killed his first rat recently. It's no trophy to y'all but to him it is. These little boogers are actually harder to shoot than you think, Drew said.
It's great practice for this young hunter-to-be. Practice on shooting those rats in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors. My congratulations! You are on your way young man!
