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.

Not Into Coon, But...
I've heard it is good eating...but have never tried it and not sure if I want to. Sap Hogan of Waynesboro, MS, said his PawPaw sent him this picture and trying to con him out of one or two for himself. Sap says he likes his grill or on rice. Here's a couple of recipes if you want to try that was posted. (1) Boil off the bone with cayenne pepper, put in crockpot with BBQ sauce and enjoy. (2) Boil it and get the film off, cut it up with some sweet potatoes and bake it. Also, someone said they have too many worms in them for him and used to watch Trapper Parker skinned them and said he's fine, thank you! I'm fine too, thank you in our great wild Mississippi outdoors!
