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
Last week I sent in a picture I took on the last day of 2013 as the sun was setting on the Mighty Mississippi River at Vicksburg. I also posted it on my blog on December 31st. Today, it was published in our hometown paper in the Classified Section and was a really nice wide blowup. The caption read - M/V Robert L. Posey makes it's way turning in the bend of the Mighty Mississippi at Vicksburg on the last day of 2013 at sunset.
