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.

Weather and rutting


make conditions good for deer....according to the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks. Favorable weather conditions and the onset of the rut are giving Mississippi's deer hunters good chances for success as the season passed the halfway mark.

"We are seeing an increase in deer movement statewide," MDWFP Deer Program Coordinator Chad Dacus said, "The cooler weather and the rut should have the bucks on the move."

Resident and non-resident hunters need to make sure their license is current. If you're planning on hunting one of the state's Wildlife Management Areas, you'll also need a WMA permit. Licenses may be purchased from a local sports retailer, online at http://www.mdwfp.com/ or by calling 1-800-546-4868. The second youth season and primitive weapon season both conclude Monday, while the gun without dogs season will wrap up December 23.

Bag limits for all season are one buck per day - four points or more - not to exceed three per license year. The bag limit on anterless deer is the same as bucks, except two additional does may be taken with a bow per license year. (Taken from The Vicksburg Post ~ Outdoors)
