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

Connor Bottin harvested this 8-point buck while hunting with his father, Bobby Bottin, on Paw Paw Island in the 2012-2013 hunting season.  He also got a 9-pointer in the same season. Connor was 12 years old when the bucks were taken.  

Siblings Colby and Carlyle Smith had some happy hunting for Christmas.  Colby, 13, killed this 6-point, 220-pound deer near Valley Park on December 23.  He was hunting with his grandfather, Jerry Smith, and uncle Jason Smith and used a 7mm-08 to make the shot.  His sister (below), 11-year-old Carlyle, shot a 10-point, 180 pound buck three days later while also hunting with their grandfather Jerry Smith and a 7mm-08.

My congrats to all our young hunters in our great wild outdoors!  Way to go guys!
