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 Hunting Youth - You Go Girls!


Olivia Oakes bagged this 8-point buck while hunting in Claiborne County.  Its rack measured 14-1/2 inches.  She made the 75-yard shot with a 7mm-08.  Olivia is the daughter of David and Ida Oakes.


Eight-year-old Mary Claire Lovins used an AR-15 to shoot this 8-point buck at Buck Bayou Hunting Club on November 23.  The deer weighed 222 pounds, and its rack was 18-1/4 inches wide and 22 inches long.


Elizabeth Hughey bagged her first deer while hunting with her father, Bob, in northern Warren County on November 19.  The 10-pointer's rack measured 15 inches on the inside spread and the main beams were 20 inches.  It was shot with a .243 from 120 yards away.


I am so proud of these three young ladies hunting in our great wild outdoors and my sincere CONGRATS to each one of them.  Yay!
