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 Youth On The Hunt

Emily Phillips, 12, killed this 6-point buck while hunting with her father in southern Warren County on December 28.  She made the 60-yard shot with a .243 rifle.  The buck had a 14-inch inside spread, 20-inch main beams and weighed 220 pounds.  Emily is the daughter of Chad and Zena Phillips.

Hannah Wilder shot her first deer in Claiborne County.  The 100-pound doe was taken with a 7mm-08 from 30 yards away.  Pictured with Hannah is her brother, Laken Wilder.
