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.

Feeding Duck Behavior
A short look at feeding behavior of ducks in a crop of corn. It shows how important cooperative farmers (local farmers contracted to farm the refuge) are to the management of the refuge. Most take pride in what they produce for the purpose of feeding the waterfowl and other wildlife. It usually takes the support and participation of the local community for true conservation to happen on a refuge. We are thankful to our local farmers!
Notice most ducks are mallards, but at the end of this video, a pair of gadwells come into the picture.
