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


Lane Gordon,7, shot his first buck while hunting in Carroll County.  The 4-pointer was taken with a .243 rifle from 92 yards away.  Lane is the son of Will and Amanda Gordon of Vicksburg.  My congrats Lane on your very first buck in our great wild outdoors!


Robley Shingleton, 10, shot this 7-point, 125-pound buck while hunting with his father in Texas. Robley is the grandson of Jim and Anita Hossley of Vicksburg.  Anita is in my sorority, Pi Alpha Kappa, Omega Chapter, and she told me that her daughter's husband and grandson went hunting near Amarillo, TX on Christmas afternoon.  My congrats Robley...what a Christmas present!

I love your youth hunt posts but I hate the new Google Word Verification.
