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.

Greg's Big Buck

Greg's big 8-point buck taken south of Vicksburg, MS in December 2000.  He was the guest of a hunting buddy/friend and used his inline muzzleloader.  The rest is history.  It weigh 255 lbs. and the antlers had an inside spread of 25 inches. This buck scored 131 on the Boone and Crockett.  Congrats Greg!
