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.

Happy 9th Birthday, Tidus David!

Wishing my Great Grandson, Tidus David, a very Happy 9th Birthday today and wish I could be there in Great Falls, Montana for your birthday party.  You are growing up so fast and I really miss and love you so much. Have a great birthday and I hope you get a lot of presents because you really deserve it.  I love you, Great Gran Gran  xxoo

P.I.G. Catching Anything?

My Facebook friend, Nancy Jo Adams and her hubby had this pig named P.I.G. back in May 2013, when this picture was taken.  The caption on the picture is "Catching anything?"  This is a priceless picture for sure. 

She said that he's really rotten and wished she had a video camera when the Mexican field workers all stopped and stared dumbfounded when she drove by them in the cart with P.I.G. running beside her on their stroll.  It was without a doubt, hilarious! 

P.I.G. could possibly now be in someone's freezer or he still might be around since he has tags in his ears so hunters may not have shot him, but you never know.  She has not heard of anyone shooting him and often wonder if she went out and rode around yelling, PPPIIIIIIGGGGGG he might come running up.  She misses this crazy P.I.G. and said he was such a character.  Hopefully, P.I.G. is out there somewhere in our great wild outdoors!

Riding Shotgun

Heather Lizana picked up her deer mount from the taxidermy in Gulfport, MS, the other day and decided to take pictures and have some fun.  

She buckled up her deer in the front seat riding shotgun and of course rubber neckers were everywhere on the way back home.  

How have you transported your deer mount from the taxidermy?  I bet the same way!

A Surprise From A Hunting Friend!

I was so happy to receive a surprise today from my Facebook hunting friend, Nancy Taylor.  A few weeks ago she messaged me that she wanted to send me a surprise and I thought that was so sweet of her to think of me.  She sent this beautiful hunting card she made by hand. 

I love my card and it makes me smile!  Thank you so much Nancy and I will always treasure it because you thought of me in such a special way.  

My deer hunting friend, Nancy Taylor!
May God Bless You too!

End It Like A Boss!

This past Thursday my Facebook friend, Michael Christian of Baltimore, Maryland, killed this monster turkey. He stated that he was only able to get out three times during the Maryland season due to work.  The first time he could have rolled one but held off.  The second time nothing and this time put a pellet straight through his head at 38 steps and stayed high to protect the fan on the most beautiful bird he had ever shot.
Michael is ready to paint the family room!

Michael commented that he has never measured a bird in his life and never put a tape on a buck either.  He loves every second of the hunt and the memories lives forever inside of him.  He has never submitted pictures either and that's not something that he and his family cares about.  What he cares about is the person or persons he hunts with that is loyal and a real friend.  He had learned over the years how to pick them and how to delete the bad seeds that suck the life out of you.  "Here's to a great hunt but even more important people who have your back and stand at your side even in your absence.  That's my hunting and fishing partners," Michael said.

My congrats to Michael on a successful turkey season in our great wild outdoors and words of wisdom!

Grand American Queen Back In Town

Today the Grand American Queen came to visit us again but only for a half-a-day.  Her destination is Helena, Arkansas, according to my app, FINDSHIP.  

I took this picture of the American Queen while walking through the Catfish Row Children's Art Park.

At the waterfront...she is such an awesome site!

M/V Ron Hunter Of Hunter Marine

Last Friday after I took pictures of the grand American Queen, I was headed home passing by the Louisiana Circle and saw a towboat coming in view.  I got lucky and took some pictures of the M/V Ron Hunter of Hunter Marine passing my hometown of Vicksburg, MS, southbound.

M/V Ron Hunter just made the sharp bend in MS River called Delta Point and ready for the next hurtle, the bridges.

Pushing southbound to New Orleans!  Safe travels!

Spotlighting Deer Charges

A 49-year-old Mississippi man found guilty of five counts of shooting deer with the aid of a light has been ordered to pay over $11,000 in fines by a Tunica County judge.

Donald Hensley, of Hernando, was found guilty last week.  In addition to the fines, Hensley is under four months of house arrest and lost hunting privileges through 2019.

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks Law Enforcement Bureau chief Col. Steve Adcock said Hensley was arrested during the Mississippi River flood earlier this year.

Lilies and More Lilies

I love taking pictures of flowers and took these the other day of some lilies just opening up.  It's one of nature's most beautiful flowers and a favorite in arranging lovely floral bouquets.  Wanted to share with you as well to enjoy!
