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.

Five Feet High & Rising!



It looks like we will be singing this song from now on with the Mississippi River on the rise with a crest of 52.5 feet on May 13.  Flood stage here is 43 feet.  It is predicted to be the biggest flood since 1937.  It does not look good for Vicksburg. The last time we had a flood in 2008 the deer at Tara Wildlife, north of town, headed for the levee in droves.  It's really looking pretty bad the officials are saying.  The 1927 flood reached 56.2 feet here in Vicksburg.  In the flood of 1882 a person could take a boat from Vicksburg to Monroe, Louisiana, some 80 miles!  This was almost the case in the Flood of 1927.
