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.
Bill Morris of Drew, MS, went squirrel hunting this morning at 8:15 and was out by 9:30. He said he had a great morning and look forward to having squirrel dumplings later today. Bill did great chasing squirrels in our wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors. My congrats to him!
Jared Ballinger of Lucedale, MS, took his little buddy squirrel hunting this morning. At least he got his head out of the phone and games, he said. This is the way it should by passing it along to our next generation.
Wishing this little guy congrats in our great wild Mississippi Outdoors! I bet he had a great time!
Mike Ukrainetz (Mike's Outfitting) of Alberta, Canada's 7-year-old son, Tyler, took a rare Canadian Snow Moose with his Hoyt Defiant bow! A 93 yard running shot, 72 lb. bow, 515 grain arrow. It was a complete pass through and Mike said it was awesome! Such a cute picture! Congratulations to Tyler in our great wild outdoors! I'm so proud of him. #mikesoutfitting #hunting #moosehunting #moosehunt #moosehunting2016 #hoyt#hoytdefiant
My Granddaughter, Candace Lynne, lives in Shreveport, Louisiana and today she is celebrating her 32nd Birthday. She is shown here while waiting on a train to pass and decided to take a picture with her dog. What a beautiful shot of both. I hope she has a wonderful birthday and many more to come. I love you, Candace! Gran Gran
Tyler Beaty of New Albany, MS, killed this monster buck over the weekend near Keownville. He said he had made a bad shot placement on him and let him sit for a few hours. This is why he looks different and stiff when the picture was taken. My congrats to Tyler on a fine buck in our great Mississippi outdoors!
This nine year old boy shot a good buck but he and his Dad could not find it. A family friend, who is also a hunter, dropped everything and got his dog and found his deer. That's what hunter's do! My congrats to this little hunter and I'm so happy that he got the help he needed to show off his million dollar smile in our great outdoors! #yarddogsdoitjustasgood #lookathesmile #nosetotheground
On September 28th I posted about "Oz Land Dreams" of a monster buck seen on a trail cam on Joe and Suzy Conyers Kansas property. She said, "To be able to touch "the one that got away"...wow just wow...I wish I could quit staring at him." Congratulations to her hubby Joe who finally got him recently in our great wild and wonderful outdoors!
Monster 20 pt. buck was 7.5 years old and 354 live weight.
MADUSA has a green gross score! Scored it 3 times and had a pro help me with the non-typical side!

Joe has been hunting for 35 years now and it finally paid off and got the one of his dreams!
This little cutie is the Granddaughter of Van Gerald Johnston of Summit, MS. He said he is getting her exposed to hunting in our great wild outdoors. By the look and smile on her face, I think she is enjoying it and who knows, one day she will be a hunter!
Cohn Livingston of Brandon, MS, is so proud of his little 8-year old daughter getting her first deer recently. She stuck it but could not find it. It was eventually found by Jay Leggett and his blood trailing dogs. He said, "It's nice to recover someone's class buck but it's better when you can track and find a little girl's very first deer." I'm glad they made the impossible situation possible.
My congrats to this cute little hunter and her father who is parenting the right way. Love the bloody face and is officially a hunter now and feeding her family. Wishing her many more hunts to come in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors.
