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.

"Hogman" Trapping A Hog!




My Facebook friend, Trapper John "Hogman" Schmidt, with his partner Suzy, are trying to get the hogs killed because they are destroying the landscape in the New Orleans area.  The meat will be eaten and the rest used for bait for coyotes, etc., and nothing is wasted.

I hope to get one in the near future at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the MS Delta.  I will used my .270 rifle to take down the nasty varmints because they are a nuisance and destroying the hunting grounds.

Some good teamwork going on there. We see lots of shooting (bow and gun), and hog-dogging, but not much trapping of hogs. Thanks for this glimpse, Marian!

Here too! Our farmer put up 3 Towers in the field for hunting hogs now. Yesterday night the first one got down. We have our house only about 200 metres from the field
