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.

Brock's First Deer Hunt

Brock is 14 years old and just finished his Hunter's Education Course on Friday, day before opening day.  His Great Uncle Gerald invited him down from Walnut, MS, for his first hunt.  Sunday he did not see anything off of his stand and on Monday morning saw a squirrel taking a gallon milk jug up a tree...he could see the milk jug moving but finally the squirrel came around the tree so he could get a better view.  He said it also had a sponge in the jug.  All of a sudden, the milk jug fell with the squirrel at about 14 ft. up.  Somehow the squirrel survived.  If only he had had a camera!  Even the animals can act like little clowns.  Monday afternoon Bob and I hunted together in the ground box stand and Brock hunted not far from us in another ground box stand.  He said he saw a doe crossing the road but was waiting for a buck to follow in behind her.  I took a few pictures of Brock with his Great Uncle Gerald.  He will be coming back in a couple of weeks and hopefully he will get his first deer in our great wild outdoors!
