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 LA Men Plead Guilty To Importing Deer

Two Louisiana men have pleaded guilty to importing live white-tailed deer into Mississippi.

Federal prosecutors say 75-year-old Edward L. Donaldson, Jr. and 42-year-old John Jared Oertling, both of Pearl River, Louisiana, pleaded guilty this week to conspiracy to violate the Lacey Act.  It is illegal to import live deer into Mississippi and against federal law to transport wildlife across state lines.

The Clarion-Ledger reports Donaldson and Oertling admitted to conspiring to import the deer from February 2010 through November 2012.  The men also admitted that the deer came from a facility in Pennsylvania that tested positive for chronic wasting disease.

Donaldson and Oertling manage a 1,031 acre, high-fenced enclosure in Forrest County know as Turkey Trott Ranch.  The property is owned by Jill Marie Donaldson, Oertling's wife, and daughter of Donaldson.

Tips On Identification & Shot Placement

Donald Robertson, Administrator of the Facebook page, I Killed It In Mississippi, posted this tip for young hunters. 

(Click on picture to enlarge) 

Just a tip for those who have younger kids out hunting on their own this year, I like to keep these in the stands I have always let kids with Hunter Education hunt out of. Identification and shot placement is a must when hunting on their own.

Tree Rats

Ricky Williamson of Grenada, MS, and 12 other hunters killed 63 squirrels over the weekend in the Delta.  It looks like a pretty good hunt to me and a great meal of squirrel dumplings.  My congrats to all the hunters in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!  Way to go guys!

Not Into Coon, But...

I've heard it is good eating...but have never tried it and not sure if I want to.  Sap Hogan of Waynesboro, MS, said his PawPaw sent him this picture and trying to con him out of one or two for himself.  Sap says he likes his grill or on rice.  Here's a couple of recipes if you want to try that was posted.  (1)  Boil off the bone with cayenne pepper, put in crockpot with BBQ sauce and enjoy.  (2) Boil it and get the film off, cut it up with some sweet potatoes and bake it. Also, someone said they have too many worms in them for him and used to watch Trapper Parker skinned them and said he's fine, thank you!  I'm fine too, thank you in our great wild Mississippi outdoors!

Three Pigs & A Boy!

Little 5-year-old Jathen got 3 hogs last Sunday at the camp with his .300 Blackout.  Jathen is the son of Shelly and Robbie Hunter of Walker, Lousiana.  Dad said it is all carbon fiber, really light, no scope, red dot open sight and zeroed in at 75 yards. You bring up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he shall not depart from it!  Congratulations to little Jathen in our great wild and wonderful outdoors!  Way to go!

Brinston's First Buck!

Brinston, son of Doug Matthews of Edwardsburg, Michigan got his very first buck recently.  Doug works for Forest River and Founder and CEO of Savage Road Outdoors.  

Doug said this was his "NEW" best day in the woods when his son got his very first buck.  I can relate to this hunting story so well when my grandson got his very first buck, a 5 pointer with my .270.  Congratulations to Brinston and to Dad teaching him to be a hunter with respect and responsibility in our great wild outdoors.

Sandbar Is Out @ Vicksburg, MS

Went to the Mississippi Welcome Center this past Saturday after the flea market and took some pictures of the sandbar that is way out in my hometown.   

While taking pictures a tugboat passes under the bridges and a train is coming over the MS River on the old Hwy 80 bridge.

I met a cute peek-a-poo dog by the name of Phebe.

It was a very long train coming across the bridge from Louisiana.

A look at the sandbar from the Navy Circle next to the Mississippi Welcome Center.  Ameristar Casino is at the far right.
Another picture from Navy Circle looking towards the bridges of I-20 and old Hwy 80.

Took this picture from Ameristar Casino of the bridges.

My brother-in-law checks the gages to see if there is any shifting of the pier.  You can see the water levels on the pier itself.  Today the river level is 5.78 feet and changed +0.273 foot with flood stage at 43 feet.  You can almost walk across the river to Louisiana with the river so low!
