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.

Happy 85th Birthday Mr. Howell
Today is Hershel B. Howell's 85th Birthday! Hershel lives in Water Valley, MS, a retired Realtor and an avid hunter and fisherman at his famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the MS Delta. He has also authored two books, LIM and Jeff's God and working on another book called, Fire Castle. He is a father of four prominent sons, Trent, Paul, Rex and Jamie and also has a daughter, Holly. Bob and I are very fortunate to have met him and his family back in 2007 by way of his son, Rex, over at Deer Camp Blog. We have throughly enjoyed his friendship and that of his family and want to take this opportuntiy today to wish him well on his 85th birthday and may he have many, many more to come! Happy Birthday to the Chief!
