Michael "Mike" Dorsett, a Tour Guide at the Vicksburg National Military Park in Vicksburg, MS, killed a 3 legged 9 point buck today in Jefferson County. It's either a birth defect or got shot off. I'm surprised he reached adulthood with all the coyotes out there. This one buck survived and thrived through it all until today. My congrats to Mike on his 3 legged buck that you don't see everyday in our great Mississippi outdoors!
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

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.
