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.

Gator Season Opens Friday


Mississippi's alligator season opens this Friday, and the state's alligator program coordinator says he expects a good one.

Low water in the Mississippi River limited access to prime hunting areas in its oxbows and tributaries last year, but most areas are at normal water levels or higher this year, Ricky Flynt of the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks' said.

"Last year we were experiencing well below normal water levels, particularly in the northern parts of the state," he said.  "A lot of those oxbow lakes that are allowed for hunting were extremely low, historically low."

With the water back up, hunters can get into more areas and spread out more, he said.

This will be Mississippi's first statewide hunting season for alligators.  Flynt said 110 more people got permits this year than did last year.
