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.

Vicksburg Youth On The Hunt


Vicksburg's Tanner Hornback, 8, made his first deer a memorable one.  The big 10-point buck scored 160 points, weighed 247 pounds and had an inside spread of 18-1/2 inches. Tanner took the buck with an 85-yard shot at Belle Island Hunting Club in November.  He was hunting with his mother, Paula Hornback.


Vicksburg resident Jon Cade Easterling, 10, killed his first deer on January 20 while hunting private land in Warren County with his uncle Stanley Myers and cousin Chelsea Myers.  He shot the 140-pound doe with an Encore 7mm-08 rifle from a distance of 125 yards.  Jon Cade is the son of Andrea McMillin of Vicksburg and the late Jon Timothy Easterling of Columbia.


Malachi Cox, 6, shot this 200-pound, 11-point buck while hunting on his family's land and in Hinds County on January 20.  He took the deer with a perfect 60-yard shot with his Ruger 7.62x39 bolt action rifle.  Malachi is the son of Richard and Kelly Cox.

My congrats to all three young boys in our great wild and crazy outdoors.  Proud of all of you!
