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.

Foggy Morning Hunt

Took this picture about 9 years ago while hunting for hogs at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club near Eden, MS in the Delta.  You can barely see a tripod stand called, The Point Stand" that I have hunted out of and seen deer.  I was suppose to killed a doe on this particular hunt but only saw bucks walked by me.  I enjoyed the hunt regardless in our great Mississippi outdoors!
