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.

Opening day of dove season is one of the most anticipated and popular hunting days of the year for many Mississippians.  Dove season brings the first hunting opportunity of the fall as the long and hot Mississippi summer comes to a close.  Dove hunting in the southeast has a long tradition of being a very social event and is a time for fellowship with friends and family outdoors.  The opening day of dove season is a day not to be missed for many Mississippi hunters.  However, a common complaint of many hunters is that they simply do not have a place to hunt.  Wing shooters around the state should take a moment to check out the variety of public dove hunting opportunities provided by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks.  Information on these opportunities can be found using the links below listed under "Dove Hunting Opportunities".
