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.

Connor's First Deer!

Vicksburg resident Connor Whatley, 7, bagged his first deer on December 29.  He took down the 8-pointer with a youth H&R .44.  Connor is the son of Scooter and Necole Whatley, and the grandson of Harold and Jan Whatley, of Vicksburg, MS.  

I happen to know Harold and Jan Whatley.  I used to work with Harold at the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers and he's also the President of Brown's Point Hunting Club north of Vicksburg on Kings Point Island.  I have met his son, Scooter, at the camp on numerous occasions when my husband and I belonged to the camp and Scooter was there filming hunts.  

Scooter works with the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks as a Segment Producer, Videographer, for the Mississippi Outdoors TV Program.  

I am so proud of Connor on getting a very nice "first" deer in our great outdoors!  Kudos!

That is one heck of a first deer for a youngster of that age and I sure would be smiling to if I was him, congratulations.
