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.

We kept backing off hoping this cow moose with just leave the road, but after 15 minutes of waiting, it was time to try to squeeze by her. Each time we would try to sneak by her, she would get aggressive. Finally, she rammed the truck several times, first with her head then with her shoulder. This ordeal took more than 15 minutes and nearly a mile of the road. Apparently, there was a grizzly or wolves nearby because she simply would not take her calves off the roadway.
