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.

Hot Dog Bait
Jerry Brownlee took his young daughter fishing over the weekend and said that it's a memory that will last forever.
Daddy's baby girl out did herself with 3 more in the bucket on the right when Momma took the picture before he had them all laid out. She has bragged about this to everyone they know that she out-caught her Daddy.
He said that she was having a fit because they were using hot dogs for bait. She wanted to eat the hot dogs, not feed the fish. When she started catching the fish she forgot all about using the hot dogs.
Jerry said that when she was only three years old she was learning to shoot and is a true redneck. So far she has killed 4 deer, one an eight point (this past season), 3 hogs with the biggest being 189 lbs. and a turkey in Green County, MS.
My congrats to this little hunter and angler in our great wild and wonderful outdoors! I'm so proud of her!
