Mike Shell from Brookhaven, MS is coyote trapping in this heat but well worth it even though its tough. This is number 27 removed from the farm and what a big male. The best trick is watching YouTube of videos on trapping (below) using dirt hole sets. That's the most common coyote set. The coyote plus the hog population are out of control here in Mississippi. He sells the Coyotes for $75.00. Keep trapping in our great wild Mississippi outdoors, Mike!
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.

This buck was killed by Hayden Samples, and also just off the Little Sunflower not far from where his Great Uncle, Buddy Watson and his brother Billy killed their bucks. This buck is 40 years later! Looks like a bullet hole in the G2's.
My congrats to Hayden of a fine buck in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!

Mike D. Samples of Lucedale, MS posted a picture on July 4 of Buddy Watson's 1961 trophy buck taken on public land in Sharkey County, MS. His brother Billy also killed a nice buck since they were running together in front of dogs just off the Little Sunflower River. What an awesome deer in our great Mississippi outdoors! Would love to harvest one like this one day! It would be a dream come true!

Hollis White of McComb, MS is so excited about his son getting his very first deer back from the taxidermy. He said he was just as happy as the day he killed it. It didn't matter what it was...it was going on the wall. Hollis said he was sitting in his lap when he shot his .30-06. He has since got a gun he can shoot.
Ricky Brister above of Brister's Taxidermy did his deer and Hollis said he did a really good job.
Congratulations to this little guy and best wishes on his future hunts. Thanks Dad for taking him hunting in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!
