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.

A Record Breaker

Photo by Eli Baylis-The Vicksburg Post

Tom Grant, left, of Boyle, and Kenny Winter and Jim Reed, both of Greenville, show off the 13-foot-1-inch, 698-pound alligator they caught at the Tallulah Hunting Club near Shipland Wildlife Management Area.  Michael Robbers also participated in the hunt.  The alligator set a new Mississippi state record for heaviest by six pounds, but missed the record length by 5 inches, said Tracy Tullos, a game warden with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.  The 2012 alligator hunting season on private land ends October 1.
