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.

A friend of mine sent me this video today and said...
Even if you don't have a garden but love nature and the outdoors, I can't imagine that you won't love this. Be sure to watch this on the largest computer screen you have available to you and have your sound turned up. The hummingbird doing rolls chasing a bee is not to be missed. Also, be sure and watch closely (around 2 min 40 sec) and check out the baby bat under its mother.
Lovely! I know that many or even most of you are astute observers of nature and, if you have a garden or back-yard, that you watch the incredibly beautiful and complex life there. But, if you are interested in these beautiful things but don't have a yard or garden, similar things can be watched from a porch or balcony planted to attract such beautiful insects as well as other wonderful creatures.
Here is a wonderful photography about such interesting and gorgeous beauty. Enjoy!
