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.

Fun Wild Time

Yesterday, Bob and I attended the very first Warren County Wildlife Extravaganza hosted by the Warren County Baptist Association at the Vicksburg Convention Center.  It was a great success!

It brought back memories for me to enter the convention center again because I was one of the first employees to moved into the building after it was constructed approximately 12 years ago.  It was a great part-time job after retiring from the Corps of Engineers after 25 years service.

I was very pleased to see such a great turnout for this wildlife event.  My husband and I usually have to go out-of-town to attend an event like this and was refreshing to have it here in our hometown which was free to the public.  Seminars were also held on Wildlife Habitat Management, Area Lake Fishing Strategies, Snake Species of MS and Feral Hog Management, throughout the day.  Bluegrass and Church music also entertained.

The Bowfishing Association of Mississippi let children to try their hand at bowfishing to promote the 2012 Youth Tournament that will be at Eagle Lake Public Boat Landing on June 16.

A guest speaker put the finishing touches on the event and after his presentation a Mathew's Z7 and Mathew's Genesis Bows were given away and you had to be present to win.  I was really lucky to win a free oil change up to $35.00 from George Carr dealership from where we had purchased our GMC Sierra truck.  Below are some pictures I took while walking around the wildlife show.
