Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
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.

Two Alligator Seasons Ago

Jared Brister and his best friend of McComb, MS, snagged this 13 foot long alligator two seasons ago with a rod and reel.  He said they could not find any scales to get it's weight.  I would say that's a nice catch in our great wild Mississippi Outdoors on a rod and reel no less!

Deformed Rack

Matt Singley of Foxworth, MS, said have you ever seen a deformed rack this bad?  It looks like it would have had a hard time eating in our great wild outdoors!  This deer really had a rough life!

A Weird Buck

Tom Sullivan of Clinton, MS, said that he let this guy walk last year. He is curious to see what he looks like this hunting season if he's still around in our great Mississippi outdoors!

Who's Got Cubs

Brad Beyer said this cam picture was taken at Port Gibson, MS! He has pictures with a male laying in a trough feeder for two days picking the corn out of the Record Rack Feed he puts out for the deer. "They can be a nuisance by tearing up feeders but has at least 50 bear pictures and see tracks and scat all the time but never seen one eye to eye, Beyer said.  I don't mind at all them being in the woods with me and we have at least 6 and I'm sure if she has cubs there are more.  They avoid people and by the time they start having problems we will have tags to hunt's just that simple!"

A Louisiana hunter said that bears are worse than hogs and run deer out, messes up the feeders, eat the feed and of course they can't be hunted.   

I believe we have bears in every county in our great state of Mississippi!

Dad & Son Making Memories

Eric Bingham of Manila, UT, is spending some time with his little buddy before he starts school next week. 

He said, "Sometimes I wish I could just stop time.  The other night Alex and I were laying in bed and he says Dad, "I just love you" and made me want to start crying like a baby.  I remember feeling the same way about my Dad when I was his age.  We are so blessed to have what we have and should stop often to ponder just how special life is...from fishing to skinny dipping and have made more memories...and NO NO pictures of the fat guy skinny dipping!" 

My congrats to this father and son on fishing together in our great wild and wonderful outdoors.  Raising kids right!

A nice fish Alex!

Jimbo's Nasty Hog

Jimbo got this pretty nasty hog recently in Jasper County, Mississippi in our great wild outdoors!  We need to kill everyone that we see because they destroy everything and make it impossible for deer and turkey to survive.  Looks like a good hog to me. Congratulations to Jimbo and this little guy with him who is all grins.

Mississippi Delta Sunflowers

Published on Aug 15, 2016
A photo montage of sunflowers in the Delta of Mississippi and Louisiana by landscape photographer Marty Kittrell of Vicksburg, MS. Find him on Facebook:

This brings back memories of seeing a field of sunflowers next to where I deer and hog hunt in the Delta.  They were at the Hillside National Wildlife Refuge in Homes County, MS, where they planted them for the upcoming dove season.  I took a lot of pictures and it was a breathtaking experience to see for the very first time in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!

True Country Girl

Allen Steele of Darlington, SC, took this picture of his daughter Emma Sayge recently. He said that most kids want to watch cartoons in the morning but Emma wants to watch the chickens! What a cute picture of his daughter in our great wild outdoors!  A true country girl!

Young Fawn Saved By Trooper!

Man, woman, child, or wildlife friend, Troopers are here to help during these challenging times.

This young fawn found itself in need while trapped in a flooded apartment complex near Burbank Drive in Baton Rouge. Trooper David Hernandez came to the rescue and was able to bring it to the safety of the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine. 

This is so adorable! Great job to Trooper David Hernandez! Looks like he's enjoying his time with the little fawn! I love his smile in our great but flooded outdoors!
