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.

Joe Malseed saw the 18-inch reptile in the city's Fishtown neighborhood and snapped its photo before calling for help. He said the alligator was in a puddle and appeared to be emerging from a nearby sewer. He said it was docile until a man tried to get a closer look and it hissed.
Police took the reptile to the city's Animal Care & Control Team. The reptile has been named Allie-Gator.
The animal control team said despite the name it hasn't determined the alligator's gender because, "Who's going to do that job?"
Allie-Gator will remain with the team until a permanent home is found.
