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 Youth Deer Hunting

Christian Oakes shot this 10-point, 17-1/2 inch buck on November 21 in Claiborne County.  The deer weighed 200 pounds and was shot with a 7mm-08 rifle.  Christian is the son of David and Ida Oakes. (Ink spot on face from paper)

Jay Jackson, 13, killed his first buck on November 26 while hunting on private land in Yazoo County with his grandfather, Michael Morrissey.  Jay shot the 9-pointer from 130 yards with a 7mm-08.  The deer weighed about 160 pounds.  Jay is the son of Darryl and Suzanne Williams Jackson of Thomasville, Ala., and was visiting his grandparents for Thanksgiving.

Dillon Little, 12, took down this 9-point buck while hunting on private land in Warren County with his father on November 5.  The buck weighed more than 300 pounds and its rack measured 17-1/2 inches.  Dillon is the son of Joe and Nichole Little of Vicksburg.

Tobbie Koestler shot this 8-point buck, his first, while hunting with his father, Daniel Chester, in northern Warren County.  The buck had a 15-inch spread with 20-1/2 inch main beams, and weighed approximately 165 pounds.

My congrats to all our young hunters in our great wild outdoors!  Fantastic!

Wow - Dillon's Buck is a monster. Congrats to all the youth hunters. Awesome! 7mm-08 7 06 are a great deer rifle cartridge.

Very good young hunters. In Sweden we must have more youths to start huntint. The hunters are starting to get old. We need hunters to keep the Swedish wildlife in a god level.
How are the rules in the US for youngsters to hunt?? (You can mail me that)

@Deano - Yes, we grow them big in Mississippi! :)

@Lindsjo taxar - go to and look under License Information and give you rules.
