Mandi Fowler of Brandon, MS, killed this nice buck near Indianola, yesterday. Not a bad day considering it was super windy and 70 degrees she said. This was not her first buck. Someone joked about her wearing lipstick but she said she is never without it. Lipstick or not she did very well for a windy day and can relate. I also shot at a nice 8 point on a very windy day and they do walk! Congratulations to Mandi on a job well done in our great wild 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.
