My first 8-point taken on New Year's Eve '89

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.

Graduation From Air Force Boot Camp

My Grandson, Michael "Ethan" Kelly graduated from boot camp on yesterday, December 1, 2012 at Lackland AFB, San Antonio, TX and will fly out tomorrow, December 3 to Fort Lee, Virginia for Tech training. 

To a little boy, not so long ago, that I took hunting and now he has graduated from Raymond High School and joined the Air Force in the last five months.  I am so proud of him and wish him well in his career in the Air Force.  My daughters, Debra, (his Mom), Kathy (his Aunt) and granddaughter, Lucy (his sister) and Sonya (his cousin) went to his graduation and took a lot of pictures and videos.  The family wishes him well and may God be with him and keep him safe from harm until his tour is over.
