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.

Little Doe

Sheila Ann Gordon of Forrest, Mississippi said that she raised this little doe from less than 24 hours old. Her mom was accidentally killed by highway workers. She learned more about deer by raising her until she was 18 months old than she had in a lifetime. The most important thing she instilled in me was to continue to hunt ethically. To EVERYTHING there is a season.

Some Fawn Sweetness!

I love these pictures taken by my Facebook friend, Mike Persichini of this young fawn somewhere in Michigan.  

He said he had some sweetness to join him yesterday morning in his dugout. 

Someone asked if it was an orphan and Mike said it might be because he has not seen her with her mother at all.  

She is big enough to eat on her own and she loves what he brings her.

 I think Mike has him a new deer friend!

820-Pound Hog Killed In Front Yard In AL

Wade Seago, a deer hunter, and taxidermist in Samson, AL, said he knew something was up outside his house on July 11 when his family's dog started barking and wouldn't stop.  

His daughter began screaming as he got up to check on his dog, Cruiser.

He looked out the back window and saw nothing, so he ran to the front of the house and couldn't believe what he was seeing.

Cruiser was barking at a massive wild hog, which was about five yards from the family's front porch.

Wade said it was not a good situation and went and grabbed his .38-caliber revolver and went back onto the front porch.

It took three shots to take the hog down before it hit the ground.  

The next day, he took the hog to a nearby peanut company to use its scales to weigh the wild beast.

He plans to display the hog's stuffed head and shoulders at his taxidermy shop.  Rest of meat was thrown away because of the heat and humidity.

He had no regrets in killing the hog and would do it again, which had tusk-like teeth that were 6 inches long. Feral hogs cause millions of dollars in damage annually, and hunters on private land can kill as many of them as they want under the AL and MS law.

Big Buck & MS Hunting Season 2017-2018

Sylvester Badeaux just got his "once in a lifetime" mounted buck recently. He said he killed it on free range private land in Claiborne County, Mississippi.  My very first deer (6 point buck) was shot in Claiborne County as well but nothing to compare to the one above. I was so proud and had it mounted like it was a 20 point buck!  

Whitetail Deer

Hunting season will soon be here again and wishing my congrats to Sylvester on a 'very fine buck' in our great wild Mississippi outdoors.

He Was Not Drinking!

I received a message from my nephew today who was at work near the Grand Gulf Nuclear Generating Station in Claiborne County, MS when he spotted a mostly white/brown doe that was standing in the road.  He asked me had I ever seen a deer like that before and told him no.  It must have been a piebald deer which is rare to see one. He said the color threw him off.  He thought from a distance it was a goat.  As he got closer to it, she turned and ran across the road! It happened so fast that he had no time to take a picture with his phone and was so confused at first...and he was not drinking!   Only in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!

Genetics On DisplayA genetic variation (defect) produces the piebald condition in white-tailed deer, not parasites or diseases. Piebald deer are colored white and brown similar to a pinto pony. Sometimes they appear almost entirely white.

A Catch & Release!

Russell Buras, Jr., of Poplarville, MS took two of his children fishing recently and said it was only a catch and release lesson.

Proverb states - Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.  

Russell is doing it right in taking his children fishing our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!

Wishbone & Boneyard

My Facebook friend, Mike Persichini, takes a lot of pictures of deer in Michigan and even names some of the deer.  This one is called "Wishbone!"  Wishbone has an awesome velvet rack this year.  The deer he takes pictures of are in a park area and also in his backyard that he calls the Boneyard!  The deer know him well and feel safe in his presence and also feeds the deer, squirrels, etc.  Mike said Wishbone is a 3-year-old and he counted 20 points!  He will be taking a lot of pictures and will keep you updated on Wishbone's progress in our great wild and wonderful Michigan outdoors! 

Mike's Boneyard!
