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.

My Photo Published
I'm thrilled once again to see that a picture I took on Labor Day was good enough to be published today in our newspaper, The Vicksburg Post, that I had submitted. I put this picture up on my September 9th post of the towboat, Jimmy Sauls, that was headed down the Mississippi River. As I took the picture, a dragonfly flew in front of my camera. I did not realized it until I downloaded it on my computer. To me, it looks like a small boat headed towards the towboat but when I zoomed in, you can tell it's a dragonfly. Below is the caption that they wrote under my picture.
Marian Love Phillips saw this dragonfly, in the foreground, as being in competition with a tow making its way down the Mississippi River, although she said she didn't see the bug until after shooting the traveling boat.
Photos submitted should be current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill itself. I am truly honored to have another one of my pictures published. It really makes for a happy Sunday!
