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.

Keaton Jones, left, and Cameron Cooksey, right, got lucky on the same day in a lake south of Vicksburg with a pair of nice large mouths. Jones' bass weighed six pounds, 10 ounces and Cooksey's bass weighed six pounds. Congrats to Keaton and Cameron on their nice fish!
