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.

Couple of Hogs For Danny!

With deer season over with now it's time to get after those nasty ole hogs.  This is exactly what Danny Perfuit of Poplarville, MS did over the weekend and got a couple of fat hogs with one being a sow.  

I hope to get back up in the MS Delta later this year to try and get hog number 3.  A few years ago while deer hunting around 5:00 in the afternoon I saw about 12 hogs in an opened field eating.  Braced my .270 on one of 3 big hogs and put the site on her head and dropped her and reloaded and shot another smaller one running.  My black sow weighed 180 lbs.  I had it processed and ate off of it for a year and gave some to family and friends. 

My congrats to Danny in thinning out the wild hog population that is rapidly becoming a menace for agriculture, etc., in our great wild Mississippi outdoors!

Coyotes, Bobcat & Beaver, Oh My!

Richard Nations of Clinton, MS recently trapped a couple of coyotes, a bobcat and a beaver.  I would stay that's a good days catch in Humphreys County.  These animals and/or rodents are destroying timber, killing fawns, calves and sheep.  I have never eaten beaver but heard hunters say that it taste like chicken.  Have you ever heard the saying, "Save a tree eat a beaver?"  My congrats to Richard on his trapping success in our great Mississippi wild outdoors!

MS Bunny Kills

Great day in Mississippi today for rabbit hunting.  The season started October 15, 2016 and will end on February 28, 2017.  The daily bag limit is 8 rabbits per hunter regardless of species.  It looks like a big pot of rabbit stew is in the making.  A lot of bunnies killed today in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors! 

Tailgate of bunnies!

Watch Your Step!

Michael Hale of Hurley, Mississippi said that this was not the trophy they were after but it sure is a big one. 

We are having unseasonably warm weather here in Mississippi for the month of February and the snakes are out crawling around, so please watch your step. 

At least he got the snake before the snake got him in our great wild Mississippi outdoors!
