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.

Youth On The Hunt

Nine-year-old Vicksburg resident Drake Douglas bagged his first buck with a bow while hunting with his father, Shea Douglas.  The 8-pointer was taken just before dusk from a distance of 10 yards.  It was Drake's first kill with a bow.

My congrats to Drake in our great wild outdoors!  So proud of you!

Mississippi Deer Season for Youth Starts Today  

Deer season for hunters ages 15 and under begins today in Mississippi.

Young hunters are permitted to use any modern firearm and harvest one buck with hardened antler and one doe per day.

The season limit for each hunter is three bucks and five does.  The spread and main beam antler criteria do not apply to youth hunters.

Beginning today, all hunters, including archers, must wear hunter orange unless they are in a fully enclosed stand.
