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.

Hunting & Fishing

Chance Williams bagged his 8-point, 170-pound buck in southern Warren County on November 11 with a Remington 30-06.  The deer had a 16-1/2-inch spread.   Williams is the son of Chad and Wilda Williams of Vicksburg.  My congrats to Chance on harvesting this nice buck in our great wild outdoors.

Vicksburg resident Kearney Waites caught a pair of big bass November 5.  They weighed in at 6 pounds, 12 ounces, and 5 pounds, 8 ounces, and were caught using a top water lure.  Kearney and I worked together for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the same laboratory at Waterways Experiment Station (WES), which is now called, Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC).  My congrats to Kearney on a very fine catch!
