Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

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.

My picture was published in Thursday paper, The Vicksburg Post, but I was not credited for the picture, which was a first for me.  I did contact them by email about it and got a reply that it was a mistake and was being forwarded to the President and Publisher, Tim Reeves.  Whether it will be corrected and republished I do not know.  I do know that it was an honest mistake and that I'm proud that they considered my picture worthy to be published in our hometown paper, The Vicksburg Post
