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.

Vicksburg On The Hunt

A group of hunters shows off a 12-foot, 575-pound alligator they killed on private land in Issaquena County in early October.  It took eight shots to kill the gator.  The hunters are, front from left, Justin Denton, Devin Houck, Eric Goza, Ed Newbaker and Ginger Gerache; at back are Kevin Goza and Johnny Gerache.  Congrats to all the hunters in our great wild outdoors!

Eight shots? How embarrassing! Troy and the Swamp People on the History Channel routinely kill a gator, up close, with a single .22 bullet. Clearly, these boys need some "skoolin!"

I don't know what happened in this instance Robert but he is awfully big and maybe they all wanted to get in on the act...who knows! Thanks for coming by! :)
